Indonesia: Human rights-based policing in Indonesia: Internal accountability: Infosheet
For a police force to be effective, it must be trusted. In order to be trusted, police must be accountable for their actions. Accountability, which is crucial in seeking to achieve respect for human rights, needs to start from within the police force itself. Internal accountability relies on chain of command responsibility which starts with good leadership: managers are responsible for their teams and individual officers. When acts of misconduct take place, there should be clear disciplinary or criminal procedures.
