In the framework of Component 1 “Fight against serious/organised crime, corruption, financial crime; proactive investigation skills among law enforcement agencies”, Activity 1.3.3 of the Work plan has been dedicated to the Special Operational Forces (S.O.F), by delivering a practical training to the members of surveillance teams, on arrest operations techniques. PAMECA V has recruited 2 French experts who trained 15 police officers of the S.O.F for one week, at Security Academy premises, from 16th to the 20th of October 2017.
The aim of this training was to strengthen the capacities of surveillance practitioners in the specific area of arrest operations. Members of this unit were trained to work during field operations in a situation to proceed with the arrest of criminals in a safe and secure manner. The trainers focused on car arrest operations, pedestrians’ arrest techniques, and indoor arrest operations. In addition, and based on the specific request of the Director of S.O.F, a tactical shooting session has been organized at the shooting range on the last day.
