THE Ministry of Interior has signed a memorandum of co-operation with the National Policing Improvement Agency, UK, to organise training courses for its personnel at all levels, a spokesman said yesterday. The courses will include modern methods of leadership, combating financial crimes, crisis and disaster management, crime scene management, security and traffic patrols. “There is also an arrangement between the Interior Ministry and the agency to follow up these courses and evaluate them every six months,” the official said. “In addition to taking advantage of courses that will be held at the Bremshill International College, the two parties are studying the possibility of including some officers from Qatar in the team that will prepare the security plan for the Olympic Games 2012 scheduled to be held in London,” he said. Meanwhile, the number of Interior Ministry employees sent abroad every year for higher studies has increased considerably, he said. So far, 120 employees have been sent this year. “These students join civil and military colleges at national, regional and international levels to acquire scientific knowledge in all desired specialisations like law, information technology, engineering, communication, fire extinguishing and electronics, according to the training strategy of the ministry.” A new group of employees from the ministry will be sent abroad for higher studies in different specialisations very soon, the official said. Employees have also been sent to attend more than 80 specialised courses and training in various disciplines in Arab and other countries during the year. GT
