African Policing Civilian Oversight Forum (APCOF)

The African Policing Civilian Oversight Forum (APCOF) is a network of African practitioners active in policing reform and civilian oversight over policing in Africa.

African Policing Civilian Oversight Forum (APCOF) was created in 2004. APCOF members are drawn from state and non-state institutions. 

APCOF utilizes the expertise of its membership to promote learning and networking on the continent and is actively engaged in country reform projects, regional dialogues. APCOF works at a continental level to prioritize police reform.

APCOF believes that the broad values behind the establishment of civilian oversight are to assist in restoring public confidence, develop a culture of human rights, integrity and transparency within the police and promote a good working relationship between the police and the community. APCOF seeks to achieve its goals through raising awareness, sharing information on police oversight, and providing technical assistance to civil society, police and police oversight bodies in Africa.
