Criminologist Dr Peter St Jean says he endorses the idea of police, community, family and faith-based reform, but insists that community policing is not the vehicle to promote a more peaceful Dominica.
He says what was found over the past three decades in implementing community policing, is that the phrase causes confusion.
He says because it ends with "policing", community members think it is a policing strategy exclusively. He explained further, as he spoke on a local radio program this week.
St Jean says a similar program was tried in the Grandbay community some years ago, nut did not go without its fair share of challenges.
