Community Policing and Youth Violence Prevention Approaches and Implementation in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua

This case study analyzes the implementation of the community policing model in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Violence and street crime committed against and by young people are one of six principal threats to citizen security in Central America. Many factors have made it difficult for Central American governments to control youth violence. Community policing is designed to improve police-community relations by transitioning from repressive policing to a prevention model of policing.
