Rwanda Police Gets Skills On Preventing Gender Violence
50 police officers are currently undergoing five day training on Gender Based Violence crime prevention, response and case handling.
The workshop which started on Monday supplements other seminars, trainings and workshops that women Police officers have had since the inception of Gender Promotion at Rwanda National Police.
The intention of these trainings is to equip female police officers and Men for Change (a group of men who work hand in hand with female Police officers to promote gender) with skills and knowledge that can enhance their carrier development.
According to the acting director for gender promotion at Rwanda Police, Assistant Inspector Police (AIP) Josiane Mukamulisa, the training is part of a partnership with United Nation Development Program (UNDP) which started in 2008 and has so far trained 200 police officers.
“The training will facilitate Police officers to deal with GBV related crimes, domestic violence and also promote gender within their areas of work,” Mukamulisa said
Police Constable (PC) Liliane Umutoni from Gikomero sector, Gasabo district noted that with the new skills she would be able to handle crimes such as domestic violence professionally.
“I am looking forward to absorb everything as it will facilitate my career,” PC Umutoni said.
Trainees will cover several themes including crime prevention and the role of community policing, gender concept, gender and related concept, force discipline among others.
The training is sponsored by United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in collaboration with Rwanda National Police.
