Baltimore Police Major Attending UN “Peacekeeping” Course

A major with the Baltimore Police Department who will be attending a United Nations “Police Commanders Course” (UNPCC) in Sweden next week will be educated using many of the same training programs offered to so-called “UN military officers.”

A major with the Baltimore Police Department will be attending a United Nations “Police Commanders Course” (UNPCC) in Sweden next week that is raising eyebrows among Americans — especially considering the UN’s history and highly controversial agenda. The three-week course is aimed at teaching officers from around the world about “peacekeeping” operations, interpretation of UN “mandates,” how to work effectively with international military forces, and more, according to the official program outline.

The UN training course, which starts on Monday and runs until April 26, is being handled in partnership with the Swedish National Bureau of Investigation and the Armed Forces International Center. According to a Swedish police website outlining the scheme, trainees will be focusing on, among other components, the alleged importance of considering the UN Security Council resolutions. Participants will be learning about “intercultural leadership,” too, using many of the same training programs offered to so-called “UN military officers.”

Also on the agenda is learning to consider what the international organization describes as “human rights” — a UN concept of rights bestowed by government, which is diametrically opposed to American traditions of unalienable rights endowed by God and guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Another primary focus, the course outline explains, will be “concepts of gender mainstreaming.” The UN has formally stated that the ultimate goal of “gender mainstreaming” is “to achieve gender equality.”  

Other primary elements of the UN commander training include “the tasks, the role and the responsibilities of a leader in an integrated peacekeeping operation” and understanding “concepts and approaches relevant to democratic policing.” How decisions can affect a country occupied by UN “peacekeepers” while empowering others to “translate vision into results” are cited as key focuses of the program as well.

By the end of the course, participants are expected to present a “personal leadership manifesto” on how they can use their “competencies as a leader” in what the outline describes as “an integrated peacekeeping operation.”
