Reading Comprehension: Application Questions

The author is most likely to agree with which of the following statements about the role of the community in crime control?

Well done!


In discussing the community's role, the author's tone is respectful. The author further recognizes that Compstat's implementation risks undermining the valuable partnership with the community. Yet, while he recognizes the value of the community's role, he still suggests that the integrated CompStat system can enhance crime control.


This answer choice leans too far towards the side of community policing. There is nothing in the passage to suggest that the author views the community's role as a foundation for effective crime control. It is seen as one element of a certain approach, but not indispensable for any crime control efforts.




The author basically agrees with the positive description of the community's role. Although CompStat is described as a superior approach to crime control, the author only suggests that Community Policing lacks the managerial and technological sophistication, but does not suggest that too much importance is placed on the role of the community. 



This answer choice leans too far towards the side of community policing. The author mentions that community members may voice their priorities, but does not suggest that this input is indispensable (=absolutely necessary).



The author does mention trust in connection with the community, but focuses on the community's trust in the police, not the police's trust in the community.

It was overrated by the Community Policing approach
It merits respect, but is secondary in the effort to maximize and optimize crime control
It is the foundation, which, if undermined, would render all other professional interventions useless
It is indispensable for defining the priorities of law enforcement activity in any given location
It can only be significant if the community earns the trust of law enforcement agents
