The Story of UNMIL
This book is dedicated, first and foremost, to the people of Liberia, whose resilience and determination have lifted their country
from the ashes of war to attain 14 years of peace.
It is also dedicated to all United Nations personnel who have worked in Liberia since 2003, and those colleagues who lost their lives
while serving with UNMIL--all of whom made invaluable sacrifices, leaving behind their families and loved ones to help consolidate
and support the peace that Liberians enjoy today.
In 2007, UNMIL deployed the first all-female Formed Police Unit (FPU) from India and, with annual rotations, they continued to serve the Mission for 10 years, providing critical policing support as well as role models for Liberia.
The main role of the UN Police in Liberia has been support to and reform of the Liberian security entities, primarily the Liberia National Police, the Liberia Immigration Service, the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency and the National Police Training Academy.
