Law enforcement response to terrorism is argued to be defining the factor in that will be successful – the terrorist organizations or law enforcement agencies. This study used a sample of confitents in Turkey, examined law enforcement practices, focusing on militaristic and traditional policing methods, in responding to terrorism in order assess the impact on the individual's decisions to join a terrorist organization. The study also looked into participants' perceptions about Community Oriented Policing (COP); and if it implemented in Turkey, how it would affect the individuals' decisions to join terrorist organizations. More than 25% of the respondents reported the influence of law enforcement practices on their decision to join the organizations. A significant relationship was found to exist between brutality and law enforcement's influence and reliance on militaristic tactics in an individual's decision to join a terrorist organization.
