Abstract

This case, like the others in the drugs and law enforcement series, focuses on the efforts of a grassroots community group and on its dealings with police. The case is distinguished, however, by the fact that the community group is organized by professional organizers. It tells the story of two separate and seemingly successful alliances with police-neither of which appears to lead to a long-term spirit of cooperation. The case explores the question of how police should respond to community group demands and the question of how to organize very low- income neighborhoods to deal with crime.
