Yemeni police train in Jordan
UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
Ten Yemeni senior police officers leading newly structured departments attended an intensive two-week training course on leadership and strategic planning at Jordan’s Royal Police Academy in Amman in November 2013.
The course was organized by the Jordanian Ministry of Interior in cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme/Emergency Capacity Development Facility project and the Public Security Directorate of Jordan. The U.S Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotic and Law Enforcement provided financing.
The first week included theory and focus on enhancing the leadership, strategic planning and personal effectiveness skills of the participants. The second week offered practical training in different branches of the police within the Public Security Directorate of Jordan.
In an opening speech, Jordanian Maj. Gen. Dr. Abed Mudi Al Dmour, deputy director of the Public Security Directorate for Criminal Investigation, said that his agency would “spare no efforts to equip the senior officers from the Ministry of Interior in Yemen with adequate knowledge and the skills in leadership and strategic planning which will enable them to serve the needs of their departments.”
Yemeni Maj. Gen. Dr. Awad Yaeish, head of rehabilitation and reform department at Yemen’s ministry of interior, thanked the Jordanians and U.N. and U.S. officials for their continuous support to the Ministry of Interior.
