Palestinian police in incident management training

(BRUSSELS2) The collection and management of incidents, during accidents or crimes, is a fundamental point in any start of a police or criminal investigation. The European mission to support the Palestinian police (EUPOL COPPS) during a first training session gave a course to 20 agents of “first intervention” at the Jericho Police College this week. “ When the police arrive to deal with any incident, the first thing they must do is quickly assess what type of incident they are facing and what their urgent priorities are “, explains Andrew Udall, Chief Inspector of the United Kingdom, currently seconded to the EUPOL COPPS mission. " Obtaining this information is vital in determining the correct response for both the officers on scene and the operations room commander to make important tactical decisions that facilitate the effective management and resolution of the incident. ».

This recent training is the first in a series of lectures and workshops that Chief Inspector Udall and his Palestinian Police counterpart, Major Nael OMAR, will deliver to first responders and operations room staff in the next six months, to improve police operations and incident management, according to Eupol Copps.
