Anti-insurgency tactics in fighting crime

Here is an interesting article ("With Green Beret Tactics, Combating Gang Warfare") about two Green Beret soldiers who found that their experience in fighting the uprising in some small Iraqi town was applicable in a crime-infested area in the US.

Interestingly it was not the nightly house searches or other hard ball tactics that they copied but the talking and building relations with the local community.
