  • The function performed by way of neighborhood policing within the sector, together with the relative emphasis of demands provider, the level to which suggestion and assistance is provided to electorate, even if neighborhood files are saved of citizen circulation and destinations, and research and arrest procedures
  • The community’s designated cultural or indigenous attributes that set it except different versions of group policing
  • Organizational attributes, together with prestige within the "hierarchy of keep an eye on" in the local or nationwide association of policing
  • The confident and damaging gains of neighborhood policing because it is practiced in the neighborhood

Either way, they present a challenge to policing, and it is of considerable interest that a number of our chapters address this issue: community policing is used as a vehicle to connect with minorities, to exploit or enhance the partially lost informal justice systems in minority communities. This role of community policing is well demonstrated in the chapters on Canada and Australia. Other countries, in contrast, have embraced the colonial style of policing once they achieved independence, recognizing that it was the most efficient way to structure a community fractured by social change and rapid economic development.

About 90% of the population are Muslims, with 8% Christians and 1% other faiths, including traditional practices (CIA 2011). There is abundant evidence in Islam that supports the existence of policing and religion as a means to social control, and morality is still a key consideration for many in Gambian society, particularly in the rural areas. However, the influence of religion on policing has its limits as the overall matter of policing is reserved to the state. For policing purposes, the GPF is divided into nine police administrative boroughs strategically located in the following key towns and city, which sort of mirror the administrative capitals of the various local government area councils: Banjul Police HQ, Serekeunda (being the biggest city in the country and not necessarily the seat of a council), Brikama, Basse, Mansakonko Janjanburay, Kerewan, Kuntaur, and Kanifing Police, the latter hosting the Police Intervention Unit (PIU), which is a paramilitary armed unit (Gambia Police Force Five Years Strategic Development Plan 2002–2007).

The emergence of nation-states toward the end of the nineteenth century demands a centralized government in order to deal with the global demands of trade and economic development. The chapter on India exemplifies this incompatibility, perhaps even a paradox. India, a young and independent nation-state that is rapidly emerging as a world power, has struggled mightily to cope with indigenous policing in its vast rural and tribal areas. There have been attempts to impose or even replace indigenous informal policing structures in rural India with a more formal style, but these often failed and ended up reverting to the indigenous structures.
