Columbia’s CCP: A Case Study

  • “Mobilizers” continue to play central, innovative, and important roles in the CPD – their use in troublesome areas offers an interesting al- ternative to “sweeps” and other forms of “stranger” police interven- tions;

  • In addition to mobilizers, Kobans are being added with Eisenhower Foundation funds to make police more accessible to citizens;

  • The drug court has been maintained and a youth drug court has been established, funded by the state;

  • The alternatives to incarceration program has been funded by public monies;

  • A popular program, “Survival,” received help from agencies not in-

volved in their original conception or funding; and,

  • The peer mediation program has achieved state-wide recognition.

In sum, the CCP agenda in Columbia continues to play an important role in the city’s attempt to control crime and provide services to youth. As dis- cussed in the case, the combination of experience, commitment to purpose, involvement of citizens, and skill of the players seems to have moved the pro-
