Community policing in Congo

The final report of the Local Diagnostic of Security for the cities of Lubumbashi and Mbujimayi in the Democratic Republic of Congo is now available (with an English executive summary).

With US and Canadian funding, IOM is currently implementing a community policing project in the cities of Lubumbashi and Mbuji Mayi, in DRC. Coginta was contacted by IOM to conduct local diagnostics of security in both cities, set up new Local Security Councils at localitylevel, assist technically these councils in drafting crime prevention plan, and assess the impact of the introduction of community policing. This two-year project started in March 1, 2016. In May, 2016, over 6000 interviews were conducted by Coginta in partnership with the Ecole de criminologie of the University of Lubumbashi and the University of Mbuji Mayi.
