Brief background of South Sudan National Police Service
The evolution of South Sudan National Police Service (SSNPS) dated back to the colonial era at around 1820 and 1898 that was Turko-Egyptian and Anglo Egyptian periods respectively, in which both colonial administrations established their Police Forces to protect their colonial administrations. After Sudan independence in 1956, Sudan Police Force became active in all provinces of Sudan including Southern Sudan provinces.
During the liberation struggle, Sudan People’s Liberation Army/Movement (SPLA/M) established the Police Force in 1994 to provide policing to SPLA liberated areas of Southern Sudan. This continued up to the time of Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in 2005 in which Southern Sudan was granted an autonomous administration, hence leading to establishment of Southern Sudan Police Service (SSPS).
After the independence of Republic of South Sudan in 9th July 2011, Southern Sudan Police Service (SSPS) renamed in to South Sudan National Police Service (SSNPS) and the members of SPLA ( Sudan People’s Liberation Army) and Sudan Police Force were merged together with Primary mission to Prevent, detect and investigate crime, maintain laws and public order, protect people and their properties and uphold and enforce the constitution and the rule of law.
