The subcommittee heard testimony in another of a series of hearings on the 1991 Crime bill. Specifically, the subcommittee investigated methods of improving community-authority relations by putting more policemen “back on the beat” and walking the streets of communities. Increasing police presence on the streets of American towns would theoretically improve the trust between neighborhood inhabitants and police, and would reduce the amount of crime on the streets. Witnesses testified on the reduction of the modern-day policeman to that of a faceless record keeper who arrives at crime scenes only after the crime has been committed, and on innovative programs putting policemen back into communities and neighborhoods. close
