Abstract: The Addis Ababa city administration is committed to enhancing the well-being and prosperity of individuals and communities through community development. Out of the six wards, 3198 were present. Using a formula, Slovin distributed 355 questionnaires with 328 samples that were then divided into three subcities Arada, Kirkos, and Addis Ketema—to describe the implementation of the descriptive case study. Using a mixed methods research strategy, this exploratory design was descriptive. The research relies on primary and secondary data, such as interviews with front-line police, intermediate and senior officials, and unpublished documents from verified organizations such as the Addis Ababa Police Commission. While the quantitative approach emphasizes how effective community policing is, it prioritizes the deployment of obstacles in communities. This study was conducted to provide impartial accounts of experiences in the wild. The surge in crime has eroded public trust and safety, leading to low levels of human well-being. The Ethiopian government has taken steps to identify the root cause of the problem and implement measures to ensure its smooth functioning. The community has been involved in problem-solving partnerships with the police, and various community programs have been established to teach people how to handle crimes effectively. This has boosted the sense of confidence and well-being in the community.
