IACP Assessment of IL3CP Shows Promising Results

Alexandria, VA – Crime prevention strategies developed with community participation is essential to building community trust. One such strategy – Intelligence-Led Community Policing, Community Prosecution, and Community Partnerships (IL3CP) – was studied by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), with support from the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, U.S. Department of Justice.

IL3CP, developed by the Rockland County, New York, District Attorney’s Office (RCDAO), synthesizes three contemporary law enforcement concepts into a collaborative approach to crime reduction. In an effort to explore the effectiveness of IL3CP, the IACP worked with law enforcement and prosecutors in Mesa, Arizona; Newport News, Virginia; and Saint Paul, Minnesota to replicate the IL3CP concept.

In the detailed project report available today, this approach showed promising results for being a collaborative and unifying response to crime and community problems by strengthening relationships between citizens and law enforcement. While the complexity of the project did not allow for a comprehensive program evaluation, all pilot sites experienced positive results and voluntarily expanded the IL3CP concept to additional communities within their jurisdictions.

The foundation of RCDAO’s approach incorporated: intelligence-led policing for the collection and analysis of information about crime patterns, criminals, and community problems; adopting an office-wide community prosecution philosophy in which Assistant District Attorney’s involved themselves in crime reduction and community activities; and embracing community policing concepts to involve community members in the development of crime reduction plans.
