Scope and content

The title of S-1884 was drawn from the function series Law Enforcement (PKH.LAE) from the “Peacekeeping Headquarters Retention Schedule,” v. 2, August 2011, Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and Department of Field Support (DFS).

S-1884 contains records documenting the provision and management of police activities in peacekeeping missions, as well as support for and reform of the host country’s institutional police capacity.

Records consist of code cables, memoranda, briefs, and internal notes covering a variety of topics, including: the activities, drawdown and phasing out of Civilian Police; outlines and concept of operations for mission police activities; training and activities for the reform of national police agencies; debriefing of the Police Commissioner at DPKO headquarters; and the role of the mission police component in mandate implementation. Also included are mission-produced concept papers for policing initiatives.

Included are guidelines for Civilian Police on assignment in the United Nations Mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina (UNMIBH).
There are also reports, dating from 2006, about DPKO’s policy on the reform, restructuring and rebuilding of local police and law enforcement agencies; and on internal evaluations of mission police components.
