Chapter Summary

This chapter emphasizes the important role of the police in effective peace-building and good governance following conflicts, disturbances and tensions. The example of the National Civil Police (PNC) of the Republic of El Salvador is used as a model of police reform because, despite continuing national problems of crime and endemic violence, the organization has so far been successful in coalescing unity of purpose for democratic policing and effectively addressing and attempting to resolve major issues of reconciliation, nation-building and citizen security. Police officials work closely with their counterparts, both regionally and internationally, in order to counter the crime and corruption that threatens peace and citizen security.

Keywords: citizen security; civilian police; democratic policing; non-international armed conflict; police reform; post conflict peace-building strategies; transnational organized crime
