Benin National Police (BNP)

The Benin National Police (BNP) is the frontline force of internal security in the fight against crimes, the protection of life and property, and in the maintenance of the rule of law, as directed by its statute. The BNP is also at the frontier of the transfer of state security responsibility to the Government of Benin as UNMIB draws down.

Provide an effective, efficient and professional Police service that is community based and adheres to the principle of Democratic Policing.
