Democratic Security Sector Governance

This SSR Backgrounder is about the roles and responsibilities of police in the context of good security sector governance (SSG). Because of their special powers and their proximity to the population, police work directly affects the security of individuals and communities on a daily basis, as well as the democratic character of the state itself. Although police organizations differ in every country, this SSR Backgrounder explains how the same principles of good SSG and democratic policing can be adapted to every context.
