The article is devoted to the study of the main perspective policies of community security in the conditions of decentralization as a component of National Security of Ukraine. It is emphasized that national security depends on the lowest level of government organization – local, namely how communities are able to implement strategic directions for the long-term development of national security independently. Certain vulnerable targets that are exposed to dangerous influences were identified. The study of security policy was carried out on the example of the communities of Southern Ukraine, as a border region, given the annexation of Crimea and the war in Eastern Ukraine with the Russian Federation. Security initiatives of Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Odesa, Mykolaiv and Kherson regions in the field of community social security are considered. It is emphasized that the improvement of social protection at the community level is possible through the introduction of the program “Community Police Officer”, which provides for cooperation between community members and the police, as well as increasing level of public confidence in the police. It is highlighted that a promising project in the formation of a community safety environment is the establishment and operation of Citizen Safety Centers, which provide a unified system of crisis response and ambulance services in communities. It is noted that, given the spread of COVID-19 infection, the creation of a safe environment for citizens depends on the region’s ability to withstand the spread of infection (the readiness of health facilities involved in the treatment of COVID-19 patients and the citizens’ willingness to participate in vaccination process to build collective community immunity). It is established that the most successful and promising in the formation of the security environment of Southern Ukraine are Dnipropetrovsk, Odesa and Kherson regions. It is paid attention to the fact that the modern policy of forming the national security of the state should be implemented from community to state on the basis of partnership, which provides for a complete reformatting of the system of providing relevant services to citizens. It is emphasized that there is the need to create conditions for cooperation between the community and the police, the community and emergency services, educational work for citizens, etc.
