Stabilization of Iraq and Syria is one of the crucial points for defeating Daesh: it is necessary to ensure security and stabilization and promote reconstruction activities across the liberated areas.
Italy is actively supporting the Global Coalition’s efforts to strengthen the military and security capabilities of the Iraqi Government and is the leading partner in training Iraqi Police Forces to ensure security and rule of law in liberated areas. Furthermore, Italy has been one of the first and more coherent contributors to the UN Fund for immediate stabilization (FFIS).
In particular, the Carabinieri Task Force has trained more than 18.000 units, by delivering specific stability policing training such as Law and Order Course, Police Techniques and Procedures, Law Enforcement course, High Risk Operations Course, Female Police Officer, Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (C-IED) Detection, Community Policing Course, Police Advanced Training, Counter Terrorism, Cultural Heritage Protection, Crowd and Riot control, Close Protection Basic Procedures and Crime Scene Investigation Course.
Courses are attended by Local Police, Federal Police, Swat, Border Police, Highway Police, Kurdish Police and others.
In Iraq, Italy will continue to support local partner forces to stabilize and protect liberated territory by cooperating with local Iraqi authorities, to make their cities safe and provide assistance to local populations.
