Training Curriculum on General Standards for Policing


Languages available: English

Sources: DCAF, ICRC

This training curriculum is expected to become a standard that various stakeholders can refer to when discussing their expectations in terms of law enforcement officials’ training. In turn, this training curriculum can inform law enforcement officials on expectations from various stakeholders with regard to the training of their units. The goal of the training is that participants understand the vital importance of human rights issues in ensuring sustainable, long-term security. The training will ensure that all stakeholders internalize the importance of respect for human rights, their roles and responsibilities, and how to interact effectively with other stakeholders, including public security forces and private security providers. Furthermore, it will enable police forces to communicate effectively and responsibly, in order to defuse sensitive situations.
