Case Study: JORDAN POLICING SUPPORT PROJECT
Since August 2013, Siren has been supporting Jordan’s civil security institutions to maintain safety and stability in Jordan at a time of growing regional turbulence. This year sees the continuation of the project implemented by a Siren-Ark Consortium.
Working in partnership with the British Embassy and the Embassy of the Netherlands, Siren has been managing and staffing a Policing Support Team that designs and delivers interventions to enhance community and public safety in Jordan. The combined value of our interventions to-date is over £13 million. We have delivered these interventions to three main beneficiaries – the Public Security Directorate, the Syrian Refugee Affairs Directorate, and the Gendarmerie.
Case Study: SUPPORT TO THE INTERNAL SECURITY FORCES IN LEBANON
Siren has been engaged in a UK funded and NI-CO (Northern Ireland Cooperation Overseas) implemented project in Lebanon since 2008. The project was launched following a Strategic Review of the Internal Security Forces (ISF). The focus throughout has been on Strategic Planning, Human Rights and Public Outreach in support of the ISF’s vision, “to meet the expectations of citizens and have their complete trust”.
Case study: USING TECHNOLOGY TO ENHANCE PERFORMANCE AND BUILD SUSTAINABILITY
At Siren, we believe in innovative solutions that integrate subject-matter expertise with technology. Siren created Fenix, a one-stop-shop software that captures police workflows and a broad range of police operations, including investigations, patrols, intelligence, complaints, and inspections.
Fenix supports multiple languages, including Arabic. It allows to record incidents, investigation and crime data, track custody data, manage patrol missions and reports, log traffic violations, gather community intelligence, plan missions and operations, manage police station visitors, handle complaints and hotlines, plan inspections, as well as research and analyze data.
Case study: INTEGRITY INITIATIVE
Siren has supported civil society to engage with the Lebanese state around controversial issues such as state corruption. In 2014, Siren was CSSF-funded to research issues around corruption and the consequent lack of trust in the Internal Security Forces (ISF) and other government institutions. As part of the research, Siren held an extended workshop attended by local and international specialists and civil society representatives in anti-corruption.
Case study: MAPPING STATELESSNESS
Siren conducted a research project in partnership with a Lebanese Civil Society Organisation (MARCH) on statelessness in Tripoli. Statelessness can be caused by the complexity of the registration process, by poverty and ignorance, by discrimination, or other reasons. Whatever its cause, statelessness has a devastating impact on people’s lives because legal papers are key to an individual’s full participation in society and a prerequisite for his/her human rights. It may even be a catalyst for anti-social behaviour all the way to radicalization.
