This text distils the knowledge, ideas and experience of three police professionals in the cause of a human rights-based approach to policing. The text is written for an audience of police officials, human rights workers with an interest in human rights and policing, and resource persons and teachers responsible for the education of police officials.

It provides a concise account and analysis of international human rights standards and best practice appertaining to key areas of policing, and it sets out a clear strategy to bring about change, organizational and thence behavioural, within police organizations.
