One week at PCP Ramallah & Al-Bireh District
Earlier this month, a number of EUPOL COPPS Advisers from the Police Advisory Section carried out a series of visits to the Ramallah & Al-Bireh Police District.
This visit granted the Mission the opportunity to spend a number of working days together with the Police Officers in charge of closest citizens` offices, obtaining first-hand information about their work and perspectives, and exchanging best practices.
The Advisers met the District Commander and the Heads of all the District Offices, including the following units: Human Resources, Finance and Logistics, Operations, Community Policing, CID and Investigation, Traffic, Guards and Internal Security, Explosives, Touristic and Antiquities and Environmental Crimes; and also visited two District`s Police Stations, Birzeit and Beitunia.
Throughout the visits, the Advisers had the opportunity to discuss, as well as exchange best practices, on a number of pertinent issues with the local Police officers, ranging from daily routine problems, strengths and weaknesses of operations, current organisational and logistic needs as well as upcoming challenges.
This fruitful series of visits has enhanced EUPOL COPPS support to the Palestinian Civil Police, with the ultimate aim of continuing to enrich the PCP’s services to the local beneficiaries.
