This essay cautions that the successes in crime reduction cannot be sustained unless police-community relations improve. The essay discusses progress and development in law enforcement, documents the innovative rise in community policing, and concludes with suggestions on how to improve police-community tension, particularly tension between law enforcement and minority communities.
