In the UK, “neighbourhood Policing is provided by teams of police officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs), and other police agents. It aims to provide people who live or work in a neighbourhood with: Access – to local policing services through a named point of contact, Influence – over policing priorities in their neighbourhood, Interventions – joint action with partners & the public, Answers – sustainable solutions & feedback on what is being done” (source NPIA)
“Neighbourhood management is about improving the way key services are delivered, tailoring them to the needs and priorities in a defined neighbourhood. Working with a neighbourhood manager and team, it requires effective participation by local residents and organisations, and commitment from local service providers to work in partnership at the strategic and neighbourhood level” (source IDeA)
