Abstract/Description

While we have seen drastic changes in methods for combating terrorism throughout history, as a society we have never been able to find a permanent solution. We have seen the rise and success of community based policing throughout the world in combating terrorism within multiple countries own borders. How might applying community based policing help or hurt the country of Yemen in combating terrorism? I believe that implementing community based policing in Yemen may drastically improve civilian and government relationship, as well as hinder terrorists’ ability to recruit new members. By conducting a multi-case study, I apply community based policing strategies from Israel, the United Kingdom, and the United States to simulate how the policies would affect the ability to combat Al-Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula. I compare multiple countries community based policing models to get a better picture of which model would be most effective within the country of Yemen.
