This training resource has been developed by the Commonwealth Secretariat to promote a human rights-based approach to policing. It has been designed for use by police and law-enforcement trainers in Commonwealth countries in designing, developing, conducting and evaluating police training programmes at all levels. It will assist trainers to build human rights standards and considerations into regular police training.



The manual includes chapters on policing and human rights in the context of counter-terrorism and dealing with the human rights responsibilities of prisons and penitentiary officers. Edited versions of the core applicable human rights institutions and UN codes of conduct have been included for ease of reference.

Community policing

The 21st century has brought many new challenges for police services all over the world. Criminal methods are becoming more sophisticated, and traditional policing methods of combating crime may not be as effective. The ‘traditional’ police model of preventative patrols, response to criminal incidents and investigative follow-up are certainly necessary, but by themselves they are not sufficient to effectively fight crime.
