2017.12 The role of UNPOL in protection of civilians (Guidelines)
These guidelines are designed to assist United Nations (UN) police in effectively implementing protection of civilians (POC) mandates in peace operations as a critical element in the comprehensive, whole of mission approach to POC and the wider UN system’s approach to protection. They apply to police components of United Nations peace operations with POC mandates, as well as staff members of the Departments of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and Field Support (DFS). Further, they may be useful to police components in all peace operations to inform their broader capacity-building in support of prevention, peacebuilding, and peace sustainment. The guidelines are aimed at mission and police planners in UN headquarters and at Heads of Police Components (HOPCs) and their senior management team, all Individual Police Officers (IPOs) and formed units including, inter alia, formed police units (FPUs), protection and support units (PSUs) and specialized teams, civilian experts deployed within police components, all staff within the Police Division, as well as other actors involved in developing or implementing comprehensive POC strategies, and describe the role of UN police within those strategies.
