Analysis of C3 counterinsurgency-inspired policing and the flip side of the coin
MetadataShow full item record
The Massachusetts State Police Special Projects Team instituted a new strategy named Counter Criminal Continuum (C3) Policing late in 2009 in an attempt to address the escalation of gang-related violence in the North End of Springfield. The perceived success of this initiative has prompted calls for its expansion into other high-crime areas of the city. However, there is an undercurrent of concern among critics of the military nexus in social science research and application; they warn that applying a counterinsurgency approach in domestic law enforcement, regardless of how it is labeled, risks casting local communities as hostile populations. Therefore, a current and objective analysis of the true effect of the C3 counterinsurgency inspired policing strategy is needed before its planned expansion. Research for this thesis utilized a single case study limited to quality-of-life indicators before and after the implementation of C3 for the gang-related problem. The advantage of this control is that the data spanned from 2007–2014 as C3 commenced in the fall of 2009. The review of quantitative data collected from various police and city sources revealed a neighborhood trending in a positive direction since the implementation of C3, but that not all indicators across the board were able to support this conclusion.
