Introduction: This project continued the APD-UNM Research Partnership's ethnographic study of the transformation of police culture as one urban police department implemented community policing throughout the police organization. The original study had given the Research Partnership extensive knowledge of organizational and cultural dynamics within the police department and between police and the community, through more than 2,000 hours of participant-observation in police operations, briefings, command-level meetings, community organization meetings, and Academy training; 120 in-depth interviews with police officers, sworn and civilian supervisors, and police management; and a small set of focus groups with personnel from the department and the community. The key findings of that study (Wood, Davis, and Rouse forthcoming; Wood, Rouse, and Davis 1999) depicted a department that had found only limited success in building a police culture guided by community policing: As of 1998, four years into the implementation of community policing in Albuquerque, a great deal of institutional energy and re-organization had focused on the new model, some very significant changes had occurred in specific areas, but shifts in overall police culture remained remarkably limited. The second phase of the project sought to continue tracking departmental efforts to drive community policing more deeply into the organization.
