Honduras: Assisting reforms in the national police



DCAF supports the police reform process in Honduras at the national and institutional levels through its multi-year Police Advisory Programme, as part of the Citizen Security Programme of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The programme’s objective is to support the Honduran Ministry of Security and the National Police, in collaboration with the security and justice systems, to increase their institutional integrity and effectiveness within a framework of human rights and meritocracy. Through our project office in Tegucigalpa, DCAF strengthens the police reform process in the following areas:

  • Strategic and operational management
  • Community policing
  • Police education
  • Use of force
  • Police accountability
  • Human resources management
  • Mentoring with a psychosocial approach
