Abstract: The paper examines the organizational structuring of security agencies in the face of the implementation of community policing in Njoro Sub-County, Nakuru, Kenya. A cross-sectional survey in Njoro Sub-County was undertaken and data collected from 138 sample respondents using interview schedules. The study targeted three security agencies: the National Government Administration, Kenya Police Service and Administration Police Service; whose officers were the sample respondents. The study conducted focused group discussions with 22 chiefs’ elders and administered interviews to the Sub-County Security and Intelligence Committee members as Key informants. The three security agencies formed the strata from where officers were selected by simple random sampling. The study concludes that there have been little efforts put in re-structuring of the security agencies to accord with and respect the structural requirements of implementing community policing. There is need to ensure that the necessary structural reforms are undertaken in the face of community policing implementation. These findings inform policy on the ongoing security sector reforms especially on the structural reforms that are required to transform the country’s security sector in Kenya. Key words: Community Policing, Organizational Structuring, Implementation.
