International Model of Policing

Dilip Das, State University of New York, Plattsburgh

Policing is a local phenomenon and a product of the local culture. It is interesting to note that the United Nations has developed an international model of policing. This is being used by several non-democratic regimes which are now emerging democracies to reform their police. My paper will examine if the police can be reformed following an international model. It will be a discussion of the challenges and strategies of police reform based on the UN model.
