We are going to focus on how policing in developing countries is increasingly becoming the responsibility of the international community through peacekeeping in post-conflict societies and numerous other capacity building and reform programs being implemented by international organizations and direct assistance programs. • Goal- allow local law enforcement to eventually administer its own operations, democratically • 192 states recognized by UN • 25-30 high-income democracies • 50 least developed • Significant increase in in both the peacekeeping role of civilian police and other capacity building and assistance efforts
Problems with local police (pre-intervention) • Corruption • Low pay • Militaristic, authoritarian police • Political • Poor infrastructure • Equipment shortage • Goals and principles of police development and reform program: • Police must be accountable to the law rather than to the government. • Police must give top operational priority to servicing the needs of individual citizens and private groups. • Police must protect human rights, especially those that are required for the sort of unfettered political activity that is the hallmark of democracy. • Police should be transparent in their activities
Benchmarks for Democratic Policing • (39 in total) • Measure 32: Use force in a manner consistent with principles of minimum force and respect for human life, and have clear policies and controls supporting this. • Measure 33: Exercise proper care of people in custody
