Three Areas of Policing
We contribute to more service-oriented policing with attention to human rights standards and gender awareness in three key areas:
1. Community policing
Community policing focuses on working in partnership with communities to solve problems of crime and social disorder. Together, police and communities find more effective and long-lasting solutions to increase public safety and the overall quality of life of the citizens.
MYPOL supports building trusting partnerships and improved interactions between the police and communities through our community policing instructional courses offered by NI-CO.
2. Criminal investigation
Part of our work is to help the MPF improve the ways in which they investigate crimes. Forensic investigators, for example, locate, store and analyse evidence to solve crimes and identify criminal offenders, so MYPOL provides instructional courses on investigating a wide variety of crime scenes, from homicide to arson.
During criminal investigations, cooperation with all stakeholders is crucial to solving the crime and prosecuting the perpetrators.
3. Crowd management
The police have an important role in ensuring the safety of people during public events. Crowd management is a set of techniques to maintain public order and keep people safe. At its best, crowd management fully respects people’s right to free speech and assembly. Through our implementing partner FIIAPP, MYPOL provides instructional courses to improve the Myanmar Police Force’s ability to manage – in line with best international practices – different types of crowds and events.
