2021.06 Functions and Organization of the United Nations Justice and Corrections Standing Capacity (Policy)
The Standing Police Capacity (SPC) and the Justice and Corrections Standing Capacity (JCSC) provide start-up capabilities in peace operations, support the planning and early implementation of transitions and reinforce existing United Nations peace by providing time-limited and targeted support through deployments to field missions and offices facing surge requirements or the need for specific expertise. The DPKO/DFS Policies on the Functions and Organization of the United Nations Standing Police Capacity (2012.12) and the Functions and Organization of the United Nations Justice and Corrections Standing Capacity (2013.11) have provided the conceptual and operational framework to ensure the effectiveness and coherence of the capacities and outlined their functions and organization. Over the years, the work of the SPC and JCSC has evolved both strategically and thematically. While experiencing an increasing demand for assistance, they have contributed to the implementation of the United Nations’ key priorities of preventing conflict and sustaining peace by continuing to serve as system-wide service providers for mission and non-mission settings, including in support of the Global Focal Point for the Rule of Law. The revised policies have been updated to take into account these developments.
