United Nations police
United Nations police, or UNPOL, are frequently deployed as part of peacekeeping missions. UNPOL generally fall into two categories: individual police officers (IPOs) and members of formed police units (FPU).
In larger missions, the head of the police component is the Police Commissioner.
