DynCorp International Police Advisor Supports Community in South Sudan

dyncorp international south sudanAs a police advisor supporting the U.S. Civilian Police (CIVPOL) contract with the U.S. State Department’s Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) in South Sudan, Michael Taylor is not only mentoring officers in the South Sudan Police Force, he is also making an impact in the local community.

In working closely with South Sudan police officers, he was told about a young orphan girl, Jackoline, who lived in poor conditions in a local village. Jackoline was well-known in the community as the “running girl,” for her ability to run long distances. Touched by her story and wanting to help the local community, Taylor coordinated with various aid agencies in South Sudan to get Jackoline accepted into school and placed in a better living environment.

“Michael is a dedicated police advisor always looking for ways to improve the living and working conditions of the South Sudanese people, so it comes as no surprise that he would be compelled to help Jackoline,” commented James Morrill, DynCorp International manager, CIVPOL – Haiti, Sudan & Palestine.

Training and Mentoring in South Sudan

Taylor supports the U.S. State Department’s Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) CIVPOL contract as part of the Sudan U.N. Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS). In his current role, he mentors the South Sudanese police force on the importance of respecting human rights.

DynCorp International supports UNMISS by providing a U.S. contingent of up to 15 law enforcement, judicial, and corrections advisors. The mission is focused on re-building South Sudan’s security infrastructure. Law enforcement specialists train, equip, and mentor the South Sudanese police force in democratic principles; judicial advisors help restore the justice system; and corrections advisors work with local counterparts to help modernize the prison system.
