Police assistance has evolved to include more variations on the themes of policing, monitoring, and training assistance, although the motivations for contributing have been consistent for as long as Canada has sent police abroad. International police, repatriated police, training assistance, training of trainers, institutional capacity building, and technical management assistance are six distinct policy options. Helping other countries to develop the capacity to provide police assistance to conflict-affected countries is a good option, and techniques like Rapid Assessment Process, borrowed from health and development project evaluation, can be used to get the balance of policing assistance right over time.
