Community Policing is intended to be proactive in nature by addressing social disorder and other causes of crime.
In addition to state, county, and local Police forces, states often confer police powers to other government agencies and entities. Special purpose Police Departments are commonly found at universities and colleges, transit authorities, port authorities, airports, and conservation agencies.
