This chapter explores how community residents understand and evaluate the role of the police the role of the state. It reviews how citizens implicitly accept the reality that the police are simultaneously subservient, separate, and generative and highlights their frustrations when subservience is thwarted. The analysis reveals that separation and generativity often diminish citizens' voice and reduce their capacity to influence officer action.

Keywords:   community residents, police, state, subservient, generativity, citizens' voice
