The United Kingdom High Commissioner to Rwanda, William Gelling, on Tuesday visited Rwanda National Police Headquarters in Kacyiru where he was received and briefed by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Emmanuel K. Gasana.
Gasana commended the existing partnership between RNP and the United Kingdom.
He said capacity building of the Force is essential.
The United Kingdom supports RNP mainly in capacity building in areas such as Forensic and crime investigation.
The partnership between UK and RNP has seen some of the Force’s personnel pursue masters degrees in discipline such as criminology and Forensic sciences, in UK-based universities of Teesside and Bram hill.
The UK and RNP will also partner in other areas like fire and rescue training, officials said.
Gelling said his government is committed to working closely with Rwandan police in potential areas of capacity building and training.
While commenting on the security in the country, Gelling said he is impressed on how streets in Kigali are kept safe.
“I am very impressed; the officers are very smart, good, and very polite,” the new UK envoy to Rwanda said.
