Required profiles and procedures for individual police officers (2017)

The document, shared with Member States in January 2017, shares the required profiles of individual police officers in UN peace operations. The document also outlines the procedures to be followed by Permanent Missions for the presentation of candidates for assignment with peacekeeping operations or special political missions requiring secondment from active Police service. In the interest of promoting an orderly process and to avoid delay in the consideration of applications, Permanent Missions are respectfully requested to adhere closely to these procedures.
