Botswana Police Ranked Africa's Best... Nigeria at the bottom

Africa’s best police service is that of Botswana and ranked 47th best in the world. This is according to the World Internal Security and Police Index (WISPI) released by two bodies, the Int'l Police Science Association (IPSA) and the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP).

The index ranked the Rwandan police as Africa’s second best (with global position of 50th) followed by Algeria (58th), Senegal (68th) and Tunisia (72nd) in that order.

Rest of the top 10 for Africa were, Egypt, Burkina Faso, Ghana, South Africa and Mali respectively.

“WISPImeasures the ability of the police and other security providers to address internal security issues in 127 countries, across four domains, using sixteen indicators,” authors of the report stated. The four domains are, capacity, process, legitimacy and outcomes.

Despite the failure of Africa to break into the top forty, the continent was very prominent in the lower rankings.

Six African countries were in the bottom 10. Cameroon and Mozambique in the 120th and 122nd spots. Uganda, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Nigeria made it an African quartet at the bottom – occupying 124th to 127 slots respectively.
