Established in 2005, the INL program in Sudan focuses on two main components. The first is the development of a Southern Sudanese criminal justice sector to better support the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, maintain security, and enhance governance. INL seeks to support the Government of Southern Sudan in its provision of security and peace benefits for the Southern Sudanese people through comprehensive development and capacity building of legitimate criminal justice sector institutions in Southern Sudan. The second component consists of support to two distinct United Nations (UN) missions in their efforts to provide security and stability in Sudan through civilian policing. INL supports the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) to mentor, train, and equip local police to help develop them into an effective, transparent, and legitimate police force. INL supports the civilian police mandate of the UN-AU Mission in Darfur to maintain peace and security through protection of civilians.
