Abstract
The goal of this research was to examine the current status of Egypt as it pertains to the present transitional government, and specifically the prospect of law enforcement reform in the near future. The Arab Spring and its after-effects are still felt to this day in Egypt, and both domestic residents and international observers alike continue to speculate as to the possible future outcomes for this North African country. Law enforcement has always played a pivotal role in contemporary Egyptian society, and with any future changes in the country, it is imperative to examine the possibility for police reform as well. In particular, this study will examine and evaluate the possibility for Egyptian people and their government to transition its law enforcement structures to more democratic ones.
