TORIT, 26 May 2012 [Gurtong] – The training was conducted by an American-based company, Military Professional Resources Incorporated (MPRI) and aimed at equipping the South Sudanese Police Service in the state with knowledge and skills to adapt to best international practices.
MPRI’s Law Enforcement Advisor Gerhard J Janse Van Rensburg said his firm seeks to provide skills for the police officers and to encourage them to transfer knowledge and skills gained to coming police generations.
The officers were trained on essential English language courses such as report writing, police terminologies and oral briefing.
They were also trained on professional development consisting of community- oriented policing, public -oriented policing and a basic computer course.
MPRI currently undertakes similar trainings in the three states of Eastern Equatoria, Jonglei and Western Equatoria.
