This year marks the 12th time the UN Woman Police Officer of the Year Award will be awarded.

Chief Warrant Officer Alizeta Kinda Kabore of the Burkina Faso National Police currently serves as a gender focal point with the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA).
