Training on Code of Conduct for Palestinian Civil Police Officers

In February 2017, the Palestinian Civil Police (PCP) officers from the political and moral guidance department of all 11 districts received a three days Train of Trainers (ToT) on the Code of Conduct, which was organized by EUPOL COPPS in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The training was meant to further enhance accountability within the Police and ensure that all offices in every district of the West Bank is aware of the Code of Conduct, including rights and responsibilities towards the public.

Beginning in March, the trainers from the Political and Moral Guidance department have begun the training on the Code of Conduct and Ethics in the districts, starting with Jericho, followed with Toubas, Jenin, Toulkarem, Salfit and Qalquilia. The PCP drafted the curriculum in close coordination with the EUPOL COPPS Mission, and will continue until all PCP officers are trained on the Code of Conduct.

The training is delivered to heads of departments and station commanders with the presence of the district commanders, representatives from EUPOL COPPS, UNDP, PCP Bureau for Grievances and Human Rights, Research, Planning and Developments Administration (RPDA), Inspector General’s office (IGO) and the PCP Gender unit. Political and moral guidance officers will continue with the training until all PCP affiliates in the mentioned districts receive the training on Code of Conduct.
