The National Police of Timor-Leste Gender Strategy 2018-2012

Developed by the National Police of Timor-Leste (PNTL) through a participatory process involving a wide range of stakeholders from within and outside of the PNTL Gender Cabinet, the National Police of Timor-Leste Gender-Strategy (2018-2020) complements the PNTL Strategy to support a professional, trust­worthy and inclusive police force.

The five-year Strategy, approved by the General Commander and launched on 16 August 2018, highlights the multiple challenges that Timorese women face in the police force that requires further attention and cooperation. It is a guiding document that serves as a reference to provide more gender-responsive policies, services and facilities that would positively influence women in the workplace and to make sure they enjoy their rights. The strategy also provides information on how to improve the security institution to enable a more adapted response to the current security situation for women, men, girls and boys in Timor-Leste. It will also help the PNTL in implementing their responsibilities under the National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security (2016-2020) and the National Action Plan on Gender-Based Violence (2017 – 2021).
