Bethlehem/PNN/

With the support of EUPOL COPPS, four senior Palestinian police officers concluded on Friday 7 October a study visit to Slovenia on enhancing the police skills in major emergency incidents and crowd control management.

The five-day study trip to Ljubljana, Slovenia, tackled a variety of subjects, including presentations on large events managing, and self-protection measures. This study trip was also the occasion for the police officers to further enhance their knowledge of special equipment for rescue operations in mountainous areas.

The participants also visited the Slovenian Police Academy which is in charge of the training and education system in the police and the Slovenian Police Museum.

“I am convinced that the Palestinian police will expand their experience in handling major operations in line with international police standards.

This will help them to discover new ways to contribute to a safer and stable Palestine, in accordance with all Human Rights standards” said Rodolphe Mauget, Head of EUPOL COPPS Mission.

The visit was organized by EUPOL COPPS and funded by Technical Assistance and Information Exchange instrument (TAIEX) managed by the Directorate-General Enlargement of the European Commission.
