Bucqueroux, Bonnie (1996). Community criminal justice: Building on the lessons that community policing teaches. In Community justice: Striving for safe, secure, and just communities, ed. LIS, Inc., 8-13. Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Corrections.

As Bucqueroux notes, proponents of community policing believe that it has the potential to serve as the model for dramatic reform of the entire criminal justice system. At the same time, the history of community policing reveals lessons about the problems involved in implementing a community criminal justice system. In this context, Bucqueroux explores both the opportunities and the obstacles in community policing. Her article covers traditional policing and its limitations, principles of community policing, and a vision for a community criminal justice system.
