Feasibility study on police reform in Kenya

Sweden mandate in Kenya 21/01/2013 - 03/06/2013

As of March 2010, the Swedish Police has a Swedish Police Adviser stationed in Nairobi. The Adviser is mandated to support the Police Reform Secretariat and the Police Reform Units in the Kenya National Police Service with strategic guidance for the management , coordination, implementation and monitoring of police reforms in Kenya. The Swedish Police are also providing short-term support to certain police reform areas, such as community policing and police training. A pilot project in community policing was launched in Kikuyu in September 2011 within this short-term support. The pilot will be rolled out to a few more areas during 2013. The support that the Swedish Police are providing to the Kenya National Police Service is financed by Sida. The current project period ends in summer 2013 and the Swedish Police are looking into the possibility to broaden the support to a more long-term bilateral cooperation between the Swedish Police and the Kenya National Police Service.

 

The purpose of the feasibility study is to assess whether the preconditions are in place for starting up long-term bilateral development cooperation between the Swedish Police and the Kenya National Police Service and to identify possible areas for cooperation.  Some of the questions that need to be addressed in the study are:

  • The will and the support for reform within different levels of the Kenya National Police Service
  • The Police Service’s interest for reform cooperation with the Swedish Police and their capacity to undertake a development project/programme
  • External factors that may impact on the ability of the Kenya National Police Service to implement reforms and to undertake a reform/development project/programme

Programme design of Swedish support to police reforms in Kenya

Sweden mandate in Kenya 10/09/2013 - 15/11/2013

As of March 2010, the Swedish Police have a Swedish Police Adviser stationed in Nairobi. He is mandated to support the Police Reform Secretariat and the Police Reform Units in the Kenya National Police Service with strategic guidance for the management ,   coordination, implementation and monitoring of police reforms in Kenya. The Swedish Police are also providing short-term support to certain police reform  areas, such as community policing and police training. A pilot project in community policing was launched in Kikuyu in September 2011 within this short-term support. The pilot will be rolled out to a few more areas during 2013. The support that the Swedish Police are providing to the Kenya National Police Service is financed by Sida. The current project period ends 31 December 2013 and the Swedish Police are now looking into the possibility to prolong the support between the Swedish Police and the Kenya National Police Service. 

In April 2013 the Swedish police with support from ISSAT conducted a study to assess the preconditions for long-term bilateral development cooperation between the Swedish Police and the Kenya National Police Service and identified possible areas for cooperation.  Some of the questions  addressed in the study were:

  •   The will and the  support for reform within different levels of the Kenya National Police Service
  •   The Police Service’s  interest for reform cooperation with the Swedish Police and their capacity to undertake a development project/programme

The study included an analysis of the progress of the reform implementation process and an assessment of  needs, relevance and feasibility for continued Swedish support to the reform process. 

Sida has, based on the recommendations in the assessment, given the Swedish police a "go ahead" to start the process to formulate a project/programme proposal for a prolongation of the support.  It is in the process of designing a programme proposal that the Swedish police requests support from ISSAT.The proposal should include clear and  measurable objectives, indicators and expected results (on output, outcome and impact level) of the cooperation as well as an activity plan and a budget.

Review of UNPOL Induction Training, UN Mission in Liberia

Sweden mandate in Liberia 06/02/2014 - 13/04/2014

The Police Induction Training Project was launched by the Swedish Police in cooperation with UNMIL and DPKO to develop an induction training programme for UNPOL in UNMIL with the view that this programme could serve as a model for other peacekeeping operations. The objectives of the Project were to make UNPOL understand their role in implementing the mission mandate and their responsibility to work in partnership with local counterparts and thereby increase the quality of UNPOL’s work and shorten the time it takes for newly arrived UNPOL officers to commence support to mission operations. The overarching strategic objective of the project was thus to increase the effectiveness of UNPOL’s work in implementing the mission mandate.

A new induction training programme has been implemented in UNMIL since September 2013.

The initial results of the project have been well received by DPKO and they have requested the Swedish Police to explore the possibility of replicating the project in other missions.

Before taking the project further the project needed to be evaluated so lessons can be learned and its usefulness can be assessed.  The purpose of the evaluation would be to evaluate if the new training better prepares UNPOL officers for their work in UNMIL and if a similar change in induction training in other missions would be useful.

All the time taking the circumstances and limitations of UN PKOs into consideration.
