Police officers in Peacekeeping Missions
Last updated: 9/15/2011 //
Ms. Kristin Kvigne and Ms. Maren Kleiven from the Norwegian Police Service visited United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations for discussion on policing and justice engagement in field operations.
Highlight topics during their visit was the role of police and protection of civilians in post conflict states. The new UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) and Security Sector Reform was also on the agenda. Peacekeeping operations are an important part of UN activities, and Norwegian police has participated with officers since 1989 and are currently in operations in Sudan, Liberia, Afghanistan and Haiti.
The two Police Officers also had a lunch with Kristiana Powell from the Department of Peacekeeping Operations.
