Community policing is a problem solving policing technique as it's application depend on location, time, culture, language and norms as well as traditions.
Community policing rests on the following pillars
1. Consultation, cooperation and interdependency.
2. Accessibility and visibility.
3. Multi agency cooperation. 
4. Proactive approach.
5. Accountability.

Now what is the way out.
