Police officers attached to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), on Friday, completed a five-day training designed to promote their investigation capabilities in line with strengthening the justice system in the country.
The 20 officers were passed out at a function presided over by the Inspector General of Police, Emmanuel K. Gasana, at the Rwanda National Police (RNP) headquarters in Kacyiru.
IGP Gasana challenged the officers to use their newly acquired skills to improve the quality of investigations.
“An organisation like ours must keep learning and acquiring new skills in order to foster peace, security and rule of law,” IGP Gasana said.
“Endeavor to put your skills into practice and strive to get more knowledge and skills that will enable you to serve better.”
Subjects officers trained in include; influence of technology on investigations, standard parameters for cordoning murder, rape and burglary scenes.
In 2012, RNP launched the CID School as a centre of excellence to facilitate crime investigation through continuous training.
