The West Coast model has been to adopt a more community policing model wherein officers come to know the community and instead of saturating for enforcement as the primary tool, officers learn to address the root problems. They do this by having an analyst team (sometimes using a rival software ESRI) discuss the top 10 addresses for service calls in each beat and then ask officers to find out why these problems occur. Some officers are also embedded in the community as school officers and as community policing officers. Officers attend truancy hearings, community meetings and hang out at the local boys and girls clubs. Officers coach sports teams and lead after school homework centers. The NYPD model is leaner, but we're seeing unrest after a sustained effort in policing in this manner. On the other hand, west coast departments have enjoyed increasingly civil relationships from their communities (though that's hard pressed right now with lean municipal budgets). [This has been a simplified discussion of the actual techniques].
