Training Manual on Policing Urban Space

The Training Manual on Policing Urban Space has been designed to assist police working in urban areas within low- and middle-income countries to develop crime prevention knowledge and skills. The Manual focuses on the dynamics of urban spaces particular to low- and middle-income countries, and outlines the importance of prevention and multi-sector collaboration in advancing urban safety. Prevention as a topic as well as a strategy is integrated into the manual to ensure continuous reflection throughout the training. This also includes a prevention approach that is gender sensitive and grounded in internationally recognized human rights principles and instruments. The Manual should be used alongside the Introductory Handbook  on Policing Urban Space, prepared by UNODC and UN-HABITAT in 2011, which offers key information for trainers.
