This analysis examines a community-police collaborative named Project TIPS that started in Rochester, NY in 2008. As an active member of the collaborative, the researcher uses systematic observation and structured interviews with collaborative leaders stretching three years of program implementation. Theories of community functions and community policing are examined to analyze the effectiveness of Project TIPS at enhancing community functioning and public safety.
