Description

Heads of Police Components from 12 peacekeeping operations and 6 Special Political Missions gathered at the United Nations from Monday this week, to mark the annual UN Police Week. 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.
