The Terrain of Community

The Terrain of Community

(p.15) {Chapter One} The Terrain of Community
Citizens, Cops, and Power

Steve Herbert

University of Chicago Press

This chapter compares normative visions of community with those articulated by residents. It explains the reasons behind the resilience of community as a social and political ideal and analyzes how it came to be idealized in the now hegemonic project of community policing. This chapter identifies the factors that citizens believe maximize their feelings of security within the spaces they inhabit and suggests that the perceptions of normative visions of community and its political potential are by no means uniform.

Keywords:   community, community policing, normative visions, resilience, feelings of security, political potential
