The aim of these training materials is to provide police-contributing countries with a comprehensive training package that combines aspects of POC, Child Protection and Conflict-Related Sexual Violence for police peacekeepers in UN peacekeeping operations. This includes several small exercises as well as a larger scenario-based exercise, which can be run at the end of a course to strengthen participants’ understanding how POC, Child Protection and Conflict-Related Sexual Violence considerations impacts police planning processes at the tactical level. The training package is designed for application in both pre-deployment, job specific and in-mission training. ITS will also mainstream relevant aspects of the CPOC package into existing functional Specialised Training Materials.
This CPOC package is specifically targeted at a priority audience of police decision-makers at the tactical level. While the Conceptual and Legal Frameworks presented herein lend themselves to a wider audience, Module 3 on the Operational Framework was developed with Individual Police officers (IPOs) and Formed Police Units (FPUs) Commanders and their staff in mind. To maximise the relevance of this training package to the target audience, Module 3 on the Operational Framework focuses on how protection considerations should be integrated into the police decision making and planning processes at the tactical level. Existing UN guidance, as well as complementary external guidance, is therefore presented only to the extent it is relevant for tactical level considerations.
