    enhancements laid the foundation for a National Police integrally connected to State led repression during Guatemala s thirty six year armed internal conflict which between 1960 and 1996 claimed 200 000 lives and displaced over one million people Because of its connection to human rights atrocities during the war the National Police were disbanded after the country s 1996 Peace Accords and replaced by the present institution the National Civil Police Background of the Archive The documents of Guatemala s National Police PN that today comprise the National Police Historical Archive of Guatemala the Archivo Histórico de la Policia Nacional or AHPN surfaced quite by accident in July 2005 The government and police had long denied their existence particularly during truth commission investigations by both the United Nations and the Catholic Church during the final years of the nation s nearly four decades of armed civil conflict in the 1990s Yet in June 2005 a massive explosion of munitions stored at the Mariscal Zavala military base in Guatemala City heightened fears that other caches of arms from the civil war would similarly ignite and endanger surrounding neighborhoods Officials from the Human Rights Ombudsman s Office Procuraduría de los Derechos Humanos de Guatemala or PDH thus set out to inspect the former Guatemalan National Police Headquarters in the capital s Zone 6 There inside the dilapidated building surrounded by an automobile junkyard they found many rooms piled ceiling to floor with stacks and stacks of police files dating to the first decade of the nation s police force in 1882 Hundreds of thousands of identification cards vehicle license plates photographs police logs but also loose files on kidnappings murders and assassinations seemingly filled every nook and cranny of the rat and cockroach infested building The subsequent discovery of about six million PN documents in thirty other regions of the country raised the AHPN s total documentation to around 80 million pages or nearly 8 000 linear meters of archival material The collection represents the largest single repository of documents ever made available to human rights investigators After the discovery the Human Rights Ombudsman office assumed custody of the Archive through an order given by the nation s Civil Court On July 1 2009 the AHPN was transferred to the Ministerio ˆde Cultura y Deportes It is presently under the direction of the Archivo General de Centroamérica AGCA Guatemala s national archive Work of the AHPN The AHPN s staff have labored since 2005 to preserve digitize and catalogue the Archive s contents As of May 2011 they have processed 12 5 million documents predominantly those from the most severe years of the civil conflict 1975 1985 In addition to this archiving activity the AHPN is quickly becoming a central actor and catalyst in prosecutions of war time cases of human rights violations and in facilitating Guatemala s historical memory It is currently used by public entities such as the nation s Public Ministry Ministerio Público and Human Rights Ombudsman s Office
