Dear Colleagues,

Fear of crime has an incredibly corrosive effect on individuals and entire communities. This
issue is of great concern to all of us in law enforcement. Fear negatively shapes all aspects of
the quality of life of America's communities.

The COPS Office recognizes that people not only need to be safe, but they also need to
feel safe. Treating both of these issues as two parts of a greater whole is a critical aspect
of community policing. That is why we produced this document, "Reducing Fear of Crime:
Strategies for Police." This publication identifies promising practices that have the potential to
directly address the fear of crime. It is written by Gary Cordner, one of the foremost experts
on the issue of community fear in the policing field.

Community policing is one of the most effective tools for reducing the fear of crime. When
law enforcement works directly with residents and businesses within a community, they are
going a long way toward reducing crime, improving quality of life, and enhancing public safety.

I know that you will find our new publication, "Reducing Fear of Crime: Strategies for Police,"
extremely useful.



Sincerely,

Bernard K. Melekian
Director
COPS Office
