United Nations police in the African Union/United Nations Hybrid operation in Darfur (UNAMID)
3 Nov 2017 -  Police Commissioner Priscilla Makotose explains the policing mandate of the African Union/United Nations Hybrid operation in Darfur (UNAMID). Based on the mandate, the police component protects civilians by keeping peace in the Jebel Marra area and peacebuilding in the rest of Darfur. UNAMID police officers go on patrol in the internally displaced persons camps and surrounding areas to keep the population safe and secure.
