Chapter Summary

This chapter examines police responses to situations of non-international armed conflict, and internal disturbance and tension. The strategies for reducing internal tension and preventing internal disturbance and non-international armed conflict examined in the chapter are: collecting community information, the use of intelligence, effective briefing and debriefing, and threat and risk assessment. The same strategies are necessary during the course of internal disturbances and non-international armed conflict. The chapter examines some basic principles and methods of planning and managing the pre-disturbance or pre-conflict environment. Graffiti can be an important indicator of tensions and a fertile source of information and intelligence. Effective briefing and debriefing are primary means for effective top-down and bottom-up communication within any police organisation. It is essential to the success not only of major operations, but also of day-today policing, including beat patrol duties.

Keywords: effective briefing and debriefing; graffiti; human rights; internal disturbance; internal tension; Malawi young pioneers (MYP); non-international armed conflict; threat and risk assessment
