International Standards: Police

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has produced International Human Rights Standards for Law Enforcement: A Pocket Book on Human Rights for the Police.

The UN Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials was adopted by the General Assembly in 1979 by Resolution 34/169 and Basic Principles on the Use of Force and Firearms by Law Enforcement Officials were adopted in 1990.

The UN Office on Drugs and Crime has produced a Compendium of UN standards and norms in crime prevention and criminal justice including principles relevant to the operation of the Police.
