dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this article is to address the dynamics of community policing initiatives and implications on security in Mombasa County, Kenya. Community policing is an initiative that promotes collaboration between the police and the community in order reduce crime, social disorder, and insecurity in neighborhoods. Given that this initiative is new in Kenya, the research sought to examine its effects on security improvement in Mombasa County, which is a hot bed of in insecurity. The study adopted a descriptive research design in order to probe for details among the respondents. While some of the respondents were identified through stratification of three categories of neighborhoods in the county, others were identified purposively based on their participation in community policing initiative. The findings of the research indicated that community policing initiative has already been implemented in the county although a large number of the population has not fully understood how it operates. Majority of the respondents observed that the initiative has contributed positively towards eradicating insecurity. Finally, the study established that there was a poor working relationship between the community members and the police, which undermined the efficiency of the community policing initiative. The study recommends for more public education on the initiative and cultivation of trust between the police force and community members.en_US
