Abstract A key objective for police is to develop innovative and adaptive methods to efficiently maintain public safety and foster strong police-community relations. The Queensland Police Service (QPS) designed the Mobile Police Community Office (MPCO), a purpose-built van with many of the same facilities of a police station, and trained MPCO officers to engage with members of the public using principles of procedural justice. This paper reports on whether the MPCO can be a "vehicle" to reduce crime, crime impact and enhance police legitimacy in crime hot spots in Brisbane, Australia.
