Some 110 Rwanda National Police (RNP) female officers completed twelve-day United Nations Peacekeeping pre-deployment course at the Police Training School (PTS) Gishari, in Rwamagana District, on Friday January 19.

The course was organised by RNP in partnership with UN Police and Canada to prepare female Police candidates for the Assessment for Mission Service (AMS) to serve in the UN mission.

The Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP) in charge of Administration and Personnel, Jeanne Chantal Ujeneza, while closing the course, said that capacity building is among the top priorities of Rwanda National to shape Police officers to perform to the expected standards, both in Rwanda and beyond in peace operations.

"Training is both a tool and profession that shape character, enforce the RNP doctrine and officers’ readiness prior to any mission.

It is also is in line with the national commitment to implement the action for Peace and embrace gender mainstreaming for female police officers to be able to perform Assessment for Mission Service," DIGP Ujeneza said.

She added that with the training expected outcomes, the gender gap, which is still being observed, will be solved as a result of fruitful training outcomes.

The Deputy Police Chief thanked the trainers and challenged the trainees to live up to the expectation.
