    Make citizens compliant

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Is the phrase "make someone compliant" correct English? Would you please correct my mistakes or rephrase my sentence?

    Peter wondered how the government had managed to make citizens compliant without ever using coercive measures.
