Community policing is a growing strategy for the prevention of crime and management of conflict. However, its implementation must be holistic and community members must work towards one direction if it is to prevent crimes. Secondly, the success of the government in empowering the Police with the resources necessary for the implementation of community policing and the extent to which the police use such resources is important for the success of community policing. Talking into consideration all factors, the contribution of community policing in crime prevention and its impact on the management of conflict and the ushering of relative peace in Kabalagala Police station, Kampala District is largely acknowledged by the public. Nevertheless, to achieve the desired full impact, the implementer need to revisit the program, address weakness, work against the threats and utilize as best as possible the available opportunities.
