Summary

On 19 July the Office, in co-operation with the police and DCAF, organised an information session on human rights in public order management at the Police Educational Complex. The audience included 13 second-year cadets of the Police College and 12 first-year cadets of the Police Academy, who learned about core principles and examples of good practice in balancing competing rights. On 20 July the Office organised a meeting between DCAF policing experts and the head and deputy head of the Republic of Armenia Police Legal Department. The meeting was organized in response to a request by the police, extended earlier this year, for support in obtaining international expertise with regard to policing public assemblies. The discussion included best practice police actions during passive but unauthorized protests, policing techniques for moving sit-in protesters and relations with the media. The DCAF experts provided an overview of the operational procedures in use in the United Kingdom, such as accountability requirements, tactical approaches, decision-making logs, command structure and media relations.
