This exploratory study tests one of the hey assumptions of community policing: that there is a relatively high level of consensus both within and between community groups, or stakeholders, about community problems and potential solutions. Results show that in the target community there is some consensus about social problems and their solutions However, the study also reveals that the consensus may not be community-wide, but may exist only among a relatively small group of "active" stakeholders who differ significantly about the seriousness of most of the problems and the utility of some solutions. Implications for community policing are discussed.
