To achieve its mission, Rwanda National Police (RNP) has drawn its strategic objectives from the national and Justice sector objectives to come up with a five-year running strategic plan.
These objectives are aimed at strengthening the institutional capacity of RNP to deliver quality services to the community as a professional police organization based on democratic values with respect of rule of law and human rights.
The support of the development partners in ensuring the achievement of the RNP strategic priorities has been fundamental during the last ten years of RNP existence.
Some of the partners’ cooperation with RNP is based on short term and others on long term partnership. Both RNP and the partners have found it easy to work together due to the well elaborated strategic plan of RNP to which all support has been aligned.
This has attracted a substantive external assistance and efforts have been made to avoid any duplication and/or overlapping international initiatives within RNP.
On 19 April, the Commissioner General was joined by the nine major development partners from the Donor Community, the Civil Society as well as the Private Sector to sign a 10th Anniversary board of recognition.
