Over the past several decades core duties of police under UN missions have been evolving more and more from traditional monitoring into a role of mentoring, training and advisory to reform, restructure, and rebuild the host country police through capacity enhancement. This course prepares national police officers or other law enforcement personnel of various ranks for assignments (secondments) within UN-led peace and security operations as individual police officers.

The course’s curriculum is driven by the UN Pre-deployment Training Standards for all individual police deployed to UN peace and security operations. The training programme is based on the Core Pre-Deployment Training Material (CPTM) and the Specialized Training Material (STM) for Police with some added elements to ensure successful bridging between existing national and UN-promulgated standards, knowledge, and skills. According to the UN, Member States are mandated to provide their selected police officers with the CPTM and the STM training before participation in a UN peacekeeping operation.

Course aim

  • Fulfill police aspects of UN peacekeeping mandates in accordance with DPKO/DFS principles and guidelines;

  • Demonstrate the core values and competencies of the United Nations.
