This indicator covers one aspect of protection in displacement sites. Law enforcement mechanisms, such as policing, civilian security patrols, access to courts and national justice systems, codes for dispute resolution, reporting mechanisms, and referral systems, contribute to a safer site environment by reducing the risk of protection incidents and providing a means to address them when they occur. Even when law enforcement mechanisms are in place, these may not be equally accessible to all members of the displaced population. Qualitative data should also be sought about who is represented in these structures (eg. youth, disabled, women, minority groups).

When using this indicator the cluster should be careful to define whether this is or is not including the host population, as this may greatly affect whether needs are met.
