STORYLINE:

Police First Sergeant Renita Rismayanti, of Indonesia, today (16 Nov) received the 2023 United Nations Woman Police Officer of the Year Award.

Presenting the award during the annual United Nations Police Week at United Nations Headquarters, peacekeeping Chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix said, “today, we are celebrating a United Nations Police officer, who, as a young agent of change, has advanced the United Nations’ efforts to leverage data and technology to ensure the efficiency of our operations and relevance of the United Nations for the future.”

Rismayanti serves as a Crime Database Officer with the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA). In this role, she has helped conceptualize and develop a criminal database that enables UN Police to map and analyse crime and disorder hotspots which, in turn, helps the country’s security forces to better plan their operations in support of the local population.

After accepting the award, Rismayanti said, “to all women, wherever you may be, I urge you to remember your limitless potential. You possess the power to enact change, inspire others, and leave an enduring mark upon the world. Let us extend our hand to those seeking their path, for genuine empowerment lies in uplifting others.”

She accepted the award “on behalf of all those quietly working for positive change.”

At 27 years of age, she is the youngest-ever United Nations Woman Police Officer of the Year.

She began her career with the Indonesian National Police as a public information officer in 2014 and has also worked in training, administration, and logistics.

The United Nations Woman Police Officer of the Year award was established in 2011 to recognize the exceptional contributions of women police officers to UN peace operations and to promote women’s empowerment.
