Law enforcement in the Central African Republic


Law enforcement in the Central African Republic

Law enforcement in the Central African Republic is virtually nonexistent throughout most of the country, as the government has lost control of most of the country and continues to battle rebel groups (part of the ongoing conflict since 2012). The Central African Armed Forces are charged with securing the country, along with foreign troops from other African countries and France. The national police is generally considered unreliable; as of 2009, there were only 1,350 policemen in the country, and most were stationed in Bangui.[1]
