​Rome: close of training course for Police forces from Uganda and Rwanda

Today marked the end of the training course offered by the Carabinieri to the National Police Forces of Uganda and Rwanda at Rome’s “Salvo d’Acquisto” Barracks of the 8th Regiment “Lazio”.

The programme, financed by the Foreign Ministry’s Directorate General for Internationalisation and Global Issues, is part of a broader training programme developed by the Carabinieri for the Police Forces of several African States (Uganda, Rwanda, African Union, Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Zimbabwe) with which there are consolidated cooperation relations.

The two-week course that was just wound up involved ten police agents from Uganda and ten from Rwanda and was on “Respect for Human Rights in Police Operations”. Today’s class envisaged simulating a public order operation in the presence of violent rioters that put into practice their previous learning activities. Last May and June, the agents had already attended a first-level course on “Road Traffic Control” and “Rangers”, that was held in their respective Countries of origin.

At the end of today’s class, the Commander of the 8th Regiment “Lazio”, Colonel Giuseppe Palma, handed out the course attendance certificates.
