Many of the countries started applying ideas that call for involving their communities in the security systems and combating crimes. This is in line with the policies ratified by international organizations. Within our region, the organizations started with analyzing the role of public in preventing and combating crimes. The Sudan police always got the support of citizens but this involvement lacked the legal framework. The first order for initiation of the popular police came out in 1976 as a trial but it was not successful to a level that encouraged its continuity.
Al Ingaz Revolution, since its start, relied on the popular support for achieving many of the targets that the formal efforts alone could not tackle. Accordingly, the issue of the order for establishing the popular police was revived and reproduced in its new version under the name of Order for the Development of Popular Police in 1992.
