Civilian police have been deployed as part of peacekeeping missions since the 1960s. However, little is known or understood about the role of civilian police or how they contribute to security, local civilian police reform or national building. The mandates, deployment processes, strategic performance and achievements of fifteen United Nations and eight European Union missions that either commenced or were completed between 1999 and 2007 that included civilian police are examined and analysed to develop a civilian police peacekeeping model. The proposed model is a flexible and generic framework that can be applied to future civilian police peacekeeping or reform missions.
