The UN Mission in South Sudan has constructed and handed over a police station to local authorities in Wau town of Western Bahr El Ghazal State.

The standard police facility was built by the mission’s Quick Impact Project Program in the Bagari-Jedid neighborhood – to help law enforcement agencies restore order and reduce crimes.

In a statement, UNMISS said the police post will enable officers to protect civilians and monitor adherence to human rights.

“This police post will help state authorities discharge their functions, protect civilians, monitor adherence to human rights and promote the rule of law,” said UNMISS representative Norbert Niyodusenga.

The police station is also expected to create a conducive environment for the return of refugees and IDPs to safe residential areas.
