So, in Iraq, when the locals turn on Al Qaeda or turn on Mookie and his boys, the first thing that happens is a group of them is put together and they're referred to as the local concerned citizens group. The Coalition trains them, and eventually they get pulled into the local police or the Iraqi Army. This allows for the locals to start fighting off the enemy with Coalitions support in a fairly quick manor.
Works well if you judge it by this report from MNF-I called 72-year-old concerned citizen takes down suicide bomber
