Background

Since 2016, the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities (MoIM) established a committee to reconfigure and redesign the role and institutional framework within which municipal police in Lebanon operate, with UNDP support. The Committee includes representatives of the MoIM, Internal Security Forces (ISF) Academy, UNDP and UNHCR, and is chaired by the Head of the ISF Academy.
Those efforts led to the design and development of a set of institutional measures of legal, policy and operational nature: (a) The Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) that were communicated to all municipalities in Lebanon by the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities in February 2018, b) the unified Code of Conduct, c) the training curriculum on community-policing approach (provided by the ISF Academy), d) a harmonized uniform (approved by the Ministry of Interior) ; and (e) a policy to increase the recruitment of female Personnel.
UNDP deployed an International consultant to assess the work of the municipal police and produce a capacity development plan in the 9 pilot municipalities which includes Baalbek. The main objective is to coach and mentor the municipal police of Baalbek Municipality to efficiently work within the new framework of the Municipal Police. The absence of Job description for municipal police personnel was a common finding between municipalities in Lebanon and in particularly municipalities that undertake the coaching.
As part of the process of strengthening the municipal police in Lebanon, a series of documents has been prepared to define the municipal police regulatory framework (standard operating procedures and code of conduct). Trainings to develop social skills, such as conflict resolution and mediation techniques, have been developed. However, to strengthen the institutionalization and professionalization of the municipal police, regulations for each city, in particular for Baalbek, should be developed.
Specifically, in Baalbek, it will be necessary to redefine the tasks, roles and powers of the municipal authorities and the police, create new structures adding new functions to the municipal police, deploy instruments to integrate the guards into the municipal police, improve the recruitment and working conditions and build the capacities to provide a 24-hour service.
While the SoP (articles 4 and 5) specify the general rights and duties of municipal police in Lebanon, municipalities do not have specific job descriptions to clarify roles, responsibilities and necessary qualifications of municipal police personnel. The Job descriptions will be made available to any interested municipality.
