Swedish Woman Named UN Top Cop

Published måndag 8 mars 2010 kl 19.32
Ann-Marie Orler

Swedish policewoman Ann-Marie Orler has been appointed to the United Nation’s top police post. Calling the occasion “a wonderful way to celebrate International Women’s Day,” UN chief Ban Ki-moon praised her experience with UN peacekeeping and her efforts to recruit more women to the force.

AFP reports that Orler, who has been working as UN deputy police advisor since 2008, will now be in charge of 12,867 police officers from 90 nations serving in 15 different peacekeeping missions throughout the world.

Orler has more than two decades of police experience, including a stint as police commissioner in the central region of Västmanland, and has also served as secretary general of Sweden’s chapter of Amnesty International.
