Analysis of the Maldives Police Service Strategic Plan 2007-2011
The Maldives Police Service (MPS) has recently completed the period of their first Strategic Plan for 2007-2011. The main question that arises is: did having the plan actually change the way police went about their business? Did it make a systemic change in the service itself, or contribute in any way to streamline it to fit a more democratic principle?
The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) and its partner in Male, Maldivian Democracy Network (MDN) created a survey to find out the answers to some of these questions. The survey is conducted to two main groups, the police and their community. The survey has been translated to Dhivehi by MDN, and will be administered by end -May through its network of HRD’s spread across 10 islands in the Maldives. The completed surveys will then be re-translated to English and will be published in a short document or report by CHRI, which the workshop (of around 30-35 participants) will be centered around.
A workshop will be conducted around the findings of the survey, and to examine the advantage of police strategic planning in general. This will be done with the help of the Human rights Commission of Maldives (HRCM). The workshop is tentatively scheduled for September 2011 at the auditorium of the Human Rights Commission of Maldives in Male’.
