DFID have supported police development projects in a number of countries, some of which have contributed to international policing. A list of such projects that have taken place since 1995 has been placed in the Libraries of the House.
Support has been provided either through standalone police development projects, or since 2001, as an element within a Safety Security and Access to Justice programme.691W
In the main, technical support is provided. This is provided through seconded officers; visiting consultants —usually retired police officers; in-country technical co-operation officers (TCOs); UK police forces and UK police training establishments. DFID also provide equipment.
