Police officers working for the United Nations in trouble spots around the world can play an important role in helping local populations to "recover hope for the future."

That's according to the head of UN peacekeeping operations, Hervé Ladsous.

He was speaking as 110 national police chiefs met for first time at the UN to discuss how to address policing challenges of the twenty-first century.

There are some 14,000 UN police deployed globally today; that's up from 2,500, 15 years ago.

Daniel Dickinson asked Mr Ladsous why the meeting was so important.
