This study examines how and why police agencies that engage in community policing strategies interact with judicial agencies that utilize community adjudication, including restorative justice, community courts, community prosecution, and similar tactics. This study investigates the interaction between community policing and community adjudication to determine organizational and intergovernmental strategies that permit both types of agencies to achieve common goals in a way that is responsive to the communities they serve.
