“Reflections on the Community Policing Initiative in the North End of Middletown”

for North End Action Team

by Kevin Baker, Ilana Cohn, Kristy Mercado, and Maggie White


This study was conducted by a team of student researchers at Wesleyan University on behalf of the North End Action Team (NEAT) to assess how Middletown Police officers and North End community members regard each other, what barriers exist to community policing work in the North End, and what ideas both residents and police have to address those barriers. The entire report is available at the Center for Community Partnerships (167 High Street), the NEAT office (33 Ferry Street), and Russell Library (123 Broad Street).
