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.

While 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 and disorder.

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.

It 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.
