Zambian Police officers in Turkey for a training

An eight-member delegation of officers from the Zambia Police Service is in Turkey for a five-day Training of Trainers (TOT) capacity-building course under the auspices of the Turkish Co-operation and Co-ordination Agency (TIKA).

The delegation led by Zambia Police Service commissioner for administration Standwell Lungu, will undergo the training to be conducted by the Turkish National Police.

Speaking during the official opening of the programme in Ankara  Monday, Mr Lungu said the training is important because it will help the Zambia Police Service enhance its ability in various areas of modern law enforcement.

“This course is very important for the Zambia Police Service and the nation as a whole. The course participants have been drawn from various important units of the Zambia Police Service.,” Mr Lungu said.

He also said the course will have a multiplier effect because the officers will be equipped with requisite law enforcement skills to train their colleagues in the Zambia Police Service.

Mr Lungu thanked TIKA for supporting the training programme and the Turkish National Police for the warm reception accorded to his delegation.

Defence Attaché at the Embassy of the Republic of Zambia in Turkey, Brigadier General Simeon Manyando also attended the official opening of the training programme.

And TIKA Researcher Nermin Ba?temur expressed happiness that  Turkey and Zambia have continued to enjoy warm and cordial bilateral relations and that TIKA hopes to further grow the relations

Ms Ba?temur said TIKA has been supporting projects in the fields of health, tourism, and education in Zambia.

This is according to the press statement issued by the First Secretary for Press Jerry Munthali at the Zambian Embassy in, Ankara, Turkey.

  1. In Zambia those 5 days will cost P.F service billions in allowances.
    5 days training will raise their salaries, and ranks will be up 5 stars

    • I failed to never find a Dull UPNDonkey opposing anything that govt says or does. Typical of Kaili-1 who has now made Mukobeko prison conditions his daily anthem instead of showing a better form of himself post-prison

  4. “There are so many writers, journalists and other professionals in Turkish prisons that 38,000 inmates convicted of fraud, rape, theft, looting and extortion were released before finishing their sentences to make room. I began by visiting five political prisoners in 2011. Now I visit over 50, who form a tiny fraction of the detainees. Among those I visit are journalists from the newspapers Cumhuriyet and Birgun, which are critical of Mr. Erdogan’s government. One of them is Musa Kart, a cartoonist at Cumhuriyet, who has been imprisoned along with 11 colleagues since October; they are facing the charge of “aiding an armed terrorist organization without being its members.” Prosecutors are demanding up to 29-year prison sentences.”

    Now we know why they are going to Turkey for training.

  6. ZAMBIA POLICE MUST RE-BRAND THE UNIFORM. WHY DO WE STILL HAVE KHAKI FROM THE COLONIAL DAYS AS OUR POLICE FORCE’S UNIFORM. THE COLOUR MAKES OUR POLICE OFFICERS LOOK VERY DULL, UNFRIENDLY AND UNPROFESSIONAL. EVEN SOME OF THE UNIFORMS FROM THE SECURITY GUARDS COMPANIES ARE WELL DESIGNED. OUR PARA-MILITARY UNIFORM LOOKS FAR BETTER THAN OUR REGULAR POLICE FORCE’S. CAN’T THEY REDESIGN IT TO SUIT THE CHANGING CRIME ENVIROMENT THE WORLD OVER. IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE A MILITARY FATIGUE WITH A GOOD NUMBER OF ROBUST AND HIGHLY FUNCTIONAL POCKETS WHERE COMMUNICATION GADGETS, NOTEBOOKS, PENS/PENCILS, TEAR-GAS CANISTERS, A BUTTON, REVOLVER AND LONG GUN, STERN GUN ETC CAN BE POCKETED OR CLIPPED-INTO. BEST COLOURS FOR POLICE NOW ARE BLACK AND DARK BLUE. THE CURRENT PARA-MILITARY POLICE WITH A LITTLE BIT…

  7. THE CURRENT PARA-MILITARY POLICE WITH A LITTLE BIT OF SOME DESIGN ENHANCEMENT TO ACCOMMODAT THE ABOVE MENTIONED FUNCTIONALITY IS VERY GOOD. CRIME NOWADAYS IS HIGHLY ORGANISED AND SOPHISTICATED TO INCLUDE EVEN TERRORISM. THEREFORE, LIFE JACKETS CAN’T BE IGNORED NOW. MULUNGUSHI TEXTILE CAN BE USED TO FABRICATE HIGH QUALITY AND DESIGN PURE COTTON FABRIC FOR THE PURPOSE. IT MUST ALSO BE COMPULSORY FOR POLICE OFFICER TO BE FIT BY ATTENDING ATTENDING GYM SESSION AND EATING HEALTH FOODS. AS OF NOW IT IS EITHER OUR POLICE ARE FAT AND WOBBLY OR THIN. A FIT-LOOING POLICE OFFICER IN PROPER UNIFORM DETERS A POTENTIAL CRIMINAL.
