ABSTRACT OF PROJECT
Introducing Creativity to Community Policing
This project introduces different creative problem solving models and tools to community policing through a series of workshops. Each model represents different concepts and principles that will guide members in the community in leadership, change, and new ways of thinking. There are multiple problem solving tools that will assist in solving challenges faced on a day-to-day basis by individuals in the community. Presented in this project are also team-building exercises that will be used to build relationships between police officers and community board members. As a united force, both parties will be able to work on challenges to improve the relationship between the police departments, the citizens, and the communities as a whole.
Keywords: Community policing, creativity, lateral thinking, six thinking hats, creative problem solving tools.
