Crime is a complicated
social phenomenon that cannot be explained from one perspective.
Similarly, it cannot be solved without active cooperation among members
of the public, various key sectors and law enforcement agencies. Indeed,
where positive collaboration among key actors is thriving, both the
incidence and fear of crime rapidly go down.
it is the
mandate of the police to generate strategies to fight crime and disorder
and bring criminals to justice, this should not be misconstrued to mean
we cannot involve other people in our team. For this reason, the Somali
Police shall continue to call on law abiding citizens and our visitors
to get actively involved in identifying and generating solutions for
crime problems affecting their areas of business or residence. This is
the essence of the community policing strategy. In this regard, it is
critically important to engage the public actively in the war on crime
Community policing is the
most effective strategy
to achieve this. The strategy introduces a new dimension where the fight
against crime is now a vibrant partnership between the police and
members of the public.
should however not be
confused with vigilantism which is characterized by ragtag bands moving
in the night and bent on taking the law into their own hands and
terrorizing neighborhoods. Rather, community policing is a partnership
between the residents of an area and the police officers posted in that
area. It is effected through meetings of an elected committee. Members
are not self appointed and also do not exploit residents or take the law
in their own hands.
