The Police Foundation was founded in 1970. Its mission is to improve policing through innovation and science. With support from the Charles Koch Foundation, the Police Foundation identified and studied law enforcement agencies that have committed to a foot patrol strategy as part of their regular patrol operations. When properly designed and implemented, foot patrols provide an excellent opportunity to build trust with the community while engaging in problem-oriented policing to reduce crime. The full report is forthcoming.
