    The Police Building starts together with the beginning of the mission itself (Aggressive Monitoring and Co-Location), it is not a process of an advanced later state of the mission. It is an essential part of any peace (keeping) mission and therefore must address the most urgent security needs of the population in any post-war situation with first priority. Police Building is completely owned by the targeted local Police Forces, international police (IP) has initiating, advising and supervisory function only. Main tasks of IP are: development of strategies and their coordination, application of training courses and control mechanisms, implementation of basic principles and standards of democratic policing in the day-by-day policing as well as in legislation and guidelines. Police Building demands for the deployment of experienced and well-prepared police officers only. As in may other missions main emphasis and too many efforts needed to be put in BiH also to overcome lack of political will and obstructionism by local authorities. Thus future mandates need to be supported by possibilities of reinforcement by sanctions. This work was supported in part by Global COE Program "The Transferability of East Asian Development Strategies and State Building", Mext, Japan.
