Abstract

Globally, the concept of community policing while applied in a myriad of customized strategies to meet the needs of individual environments is underpinned by common objectives, which include engaging the community to complement a core business of policing, community safety. In parallel, police agencies of all sizes and nationalities have developed a range of targeted campaigns to support and enhance community engagement with police to contribute to building safe communities. The combination of ‘soft power’ or ‘soft’ policing strategies with community policing campaigns is a central tenant of the Abu Dhabi Police, We Are All Police initiative. This article presents the journey of the We Are All Police initiative and the outcome for more than 200 nationalities combining in a 1.48 million population of Abu Dhabi residents. Aligning the vision, aims, purpose, acceptance, and impact of the Abu Dhabi Police community-based strategy contributes to informing deliberations of policy and practice in the policing of a modern society.
