What does a problem oriented policing (POP) unit do?

The POP unit each month takes the list of the top 5 people and locations generating calls for service in the community and begin looking at "why" they are generating so many calls for service. Once the "why" is determined, the POP unit develops a plan to deal with the root cause for the problems that are generating so many calls for service. This involves going beyond the typical traditional police response and emphasizes helping citizens and families whenever possible while dealing with quality of life issues.
