UNDP's Integrated Governance Programme (IGP) provided assistance to strengthen elections security through community policing and training of front line police officers in human rights, election security and gender sensitivity. Training of Trainers has been conducted for 40 police officers on election security. 3500 pamphlets outlining police conduct during elections were developed which includes; - physical distance police has to maintain from the ballot box, as well as the conduct of police and issues that police should be aware/cautious of while providing security during elections. These were based on the curriculum and the training materials developed by the Election Security Expert in early 2013.
