MONROVIA-The Liberia National Police, (LNP) and Joint Security Officers are benefiting from training organized by the West African Police Information System (WAPIS) with sponsorship from the European Union in Monrovia.
WAPIS is supported by a multi-annual program funded by the European Union and implemented by INTERPOL in all 15 ECOWAS Countries.
The two weeks of training began on Monday, March 13, 2023, and brought together 22 Joint Security Officers (4 females and 18 males). They are benefiting from lectures on data collection and the storage of investigated transnational crimes, passport fraud analysis, and cyber-crime prevention.
Speaking during the opening Program, the Head of the Corporation for the Delegation of the European Union to Liberia, Mr. Jeroen Witkamp urged participants to remain committed, effective, and proactively share crimes investigated by WAPIS’s Member States, specifically Transnational Crimes.
He further mandated Liberian key Security Apparatus (LNP/LIS & LDEA) to regularly share criminal information Nationally, Regionally, and Internationally (INTERPOL).
For his part, the proxy of the Inspector-General of Police, Prince B. Mulbah hailed the WAPIS’s Facilitators for enhancing and building the capacities of Law Enforcement Personnel.
