The recent Department of Justice report detailing the use of excessive force by Cleveland police officers points to a glaring deficiency; the lack of effective community policing.

Patrick Oliver, a former Chief of the Cleveland Police Department and current Director of the Criminal Justice Department at Cedarville University explains how community policing can improve relations between police and segments of the community where mistrust of police can lead to problems like the ones experienced last summer in Ferguson, Missouri and Staten Island, New York.
