25 police officers trained on investigation, litigation techniques

At least 25 police officers have undergone a two-day training on investigation and litigation techniques.

The training, which was held Friday and Saturday last week, took place at African Centre for Legal Research and Training in Bakau.

Reading the speech of the Inspector General of Police, AIG Ebrima Bah, said training is very dear to him because he spent most of his life as a trainer.
He told the officers to be proud as being a police officer is a privilege since thousands outside want to be like them.

He urged the participants to grab the opportunity and improve on their techniques in litigation and investigation.
The chairperson of the African Centre for Legal Research and Training, Magistrate Peter Adoh Che said he took inspiration from the cases that come to his courtroom and decided to offer the right ingredients to the officers to prosecute and not persecute.

He said the training offers him a rare opportunity to interact with prosecutors outside court.
The officers were trained on many aspects of investigation and litigation, from arrest, plea taking, documentary evidence, charges, among others, with experienced judges and barristers being trainers.
