STORY: 200 officers from the Somali Police Force (SPF) left Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital, on Thursday (January 17) for neighboring Djibouti where they will participate in a three-month training course organized by the police component of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

The 184 Men and 16 women will receive specialized training in public order management facilitated by AMISOM with funding support from the Italian government.

Institutions like the Somali police virtually collapsed during the decades of civil strife that engulfed Somalia. In August 2011 the Somali National Security Forces - with AMISOM support - pushed extremist fighters al-Shabaab out of the their bases in central and southern parts of the country.

AMISOM is now working closely with the SPF to build capacity and professionalism. SPF’s 5000 officers are currently being trained on basic police duties, human rights, crime prevention strategies, community policing and search procedures as well as running courses in traffic management and criminal investigation techniques.

We the Somali Police and AMISON are in the process of rebuilding the Somali Police and we will make them as they were before the government collapsed.”

While seeing off the team, AMISOM Police Commissioner Dr. Charles Makono appealed to the participants to make the most of the training and return home ready to implement their newly acquired skills in improving the security of Somalia.

Last month the SPF celebrated the 69th anniversary of its founding.
