Nelson Mugweru Njiri, Lazarus Ngari, Lucy Maina

This study assessed the implementation of community policing programme in Nakuru Police Division. The objective of the study was to assess the effectiveness of institutional arrangement of community policing programme in Nakuru Police Division. The study was based on a descriptive survey design and targeted 330 police officers and community members involved in community policing programme. Stratified simple random sampling technique was used to select a sample size of 127 respondents. Data was collected using questionnaires and analyzed using frequency and percentages. The study has concluded that community policing programme in Nakuru Police Division was structured and mainly funded by the government. It is also evident that most of the police officers were also informed about community policing operations. However, the community policing programme lacked adequate resources as there were no specific police officers assigned to community policing programme. It is therefore recommended that sensitization programmes should be enhanced through organized community policing meetings with the public in order to educate the members of the public on how community policing works and how to improve good relationship with the police. In addition, the government should allocate more funds and resources to support the operations of community policing programmes.
