Reform and modernisation of police forces across Africa is a key element of our efforts to deliver this Government's security and consular priorities abroad. An effective police force is crucial in post-conflict environments and in countries at risk of instability.
The Government support police forces across Africa in a number of wide-ranging projects. They include training to combat terrorism, detect fraud, promote human rights, and provide policing equipment (eg radios and vehicles). Specific projects include: £20.6 million over a four year period to increase the effectiveness of the police and justice systems in Sudan; £60 million over five years for security sector accountability and police reform in the Democratic Republic of Congo; and £60,000 to support the development of a new community policing capability in Ghana.
