This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on community policing. It suggests a need to rethink policing as a reform movement. It explains that the potential of community of policing is unlikely ever to be realized because it raises provocative questions about the roles of the state, community, and the relation between the government and the governed. The findings also indicate that community, in whatever form, cannot relate in any simple fashion to the police or any other component of the state.

Keywords:   community policing, reform movement, state, police, government
