This chapter starts by discussing the organisational context and response at the local level to the introduction by central government of the two policies. It then examines the political impact of Prevent. The implications of the management of Funding for the understanding of how resistance to Prevent had implications for the ways in which it was implemented, while the issue of The ‘Usual Suspects’ indicates how concerns with security and community resistance interact in shaping the local authorities' engagement with local communities. Next, the chapter shifts from a focus on the personal to a concern with Community perceptions of the implementation of these policies. It is impossible to isolate one policy from the implications of other government actions. The data gives substantive support for the concerns that have been expressed elsewhere regarding the damaging impact of Prevent on Community Cohesion initiatives.
