UN News Centre asked some of the police leaders attending the event how their police components were making communities safer and more secure. The following are accounts of their experience, and how people-centred policing activities serve to enhance development, law enforcement and peaceful co-existence around the world. (Transcription) Police has an essential role, especially in the protection of civilians, (which) involves engaging with the communities, especially ensuring that their lives are not in danger, (and) their property is protected. Especially in the UNMISS, we do this (in) support of the UN mandate, we work with other partners, and work with other components, like the local police; we work with the UNMISS core force, we work with NDSS, in order to implement the mandate – the mandate of the protection of civilians.

UN News Centre asked some of the police leaders attending the event how their police components were making communities safer and more secure. The following are accounts of their experience, and how people-centred policing activities serve to enhance development, law enforcement and peaceful co-existence around the world. (Transcription) In Guinea-Bissau, what we have done is as opposed to the traditional police approach of policing, prosecution and incarceration, we have taken a people-centric approach, which is also called community policing, in which you go with the community, you identify the security needs; and also you take the community into problem-solving approaches. Due to this methodology, the whole situation has turned to a transformational narrative in terms of policing in Guinea-Bissau. And we expect to extend this (community policing) to 12 more locations – that is a long-term view.

The United Nations police resources perform their daily policing duties, in support of host police, with the primary aim of securing local communities, which have suffered a lot from inter-communal violence over the last years. Co-location of police peacekeepers at the same place as their national counterparts, and through strengthening the quality of the service delivery, and encourage crime reporting, and promote client-oriented policies, especially the most vulnerable groups.

UN News Centre asked some of the police leaders attending the event how their police components were making communities safer and more secure. The following are accounts of their experience, and how people-centred policing activities serve to enhance development, law enforcement and peaceful co-existence around the world. (Transcription) Through the Mission leadership, we have made the Mission leadership, UN agencies, funds and programmes to appreciate the central role of policing; that without policing, without security, law and order, you cannot enhance development. Therefore, the Mission leadership has appreciated that indeed, police activities are central to development, are central to security, are central to tranquillity, are central to peaceful co-existence, between and among communities. So the Mission leadership encourages us to enforce peaceful co-existence, by supporting us through logistics that would enhance policing for the community.

UN News Centre asked some of the police leaders attending the event how their police components were making communities safer and more secure. The following are accounts of their experience, and how people-centred policing activities serve to enhance development, law enforcement and peaceful co-existence around the world. (Transcription) Policing is what we need to have in order to achieve sustainable peace. Police and the rule of law are the basics in a democratic society that would actually create the conditions for sustainable peace. If you ask about my own unique standing police capacity, we have been working in a lot of different missions on these issues. For example, one of my community policing officers went to UNMISS, South Sudan, to assist in creating strategies in working on protection of civilians. Another example is: we work also with the UN country teams and UNDP. So in Sierra Leone, another police reform officer has been assisting in creating community policing in some regions. So that was also creating the security for the people in the mission.

UN News Centre asked some of the police leaders attending the event how their police components were making communities safer and more secure. The following are accounts of their experience, and how people-centred policing activities serve to enhance development, law enforcement and peaceful co-existence around the world. (Transcription) UNMIL’s police component has been working very hard over the last 18 months, with its Liberian counterparts. We have been working with the Liberian National Police to develop a community policing policy, and its national action plan, which is to strengthen its relationship and engagement with the community. We try to operate more in a preventive space. That is involving the community and the community mechanisms, working alongside (the) police and other law enforcement partners, to be part of preventing crime; but if crime has occurred, working with the community in trying to actually successfully resolve it.

(Transcription) We do this (policing) in close cooperation and consultation with the UN country team and arms of police. After 25 years of civil war and more military approach of policing, we’ve changed now to have a community policing approach in Somalia. And this will help to make Somalia safer and to have a greater environment for the people in the country.
