Association of Ukrainian Human Rights Monitors on Law Enforcement

Association of Ukrainian Human Rights Monitors on Law Enforcement (Association UMDPL) was founded in 2010 by former employees of the Human Rights Monitoring Department of the Ministry of Interior. The Association has established a network of monitors who track police compliance with human rights guidelines and prepare periodic reports on the quality of human rights observance by the Ukrainian police. The Association UMDPL analyzes Ukrainian legislation related to law-enforcement activities, documents human rights violations, educates government officials about human rights, carries out public opinion surveys to evaluate police effectiveness, and develops and implements public involvement in oversight of law-enforcement activities. The Association UMDPL works with NGOs, activists, civil society experts, victims of abuse, and government employees.
