A New Child Protection Course for UN Police

As part of the partnership established since 2011 with the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the IBCR has visited the Center of Excellence for Stability Police Units (COESPU), throughout the week of July 15th in Vicenza, Italy.

More than 20 police instructors from Ghana, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Sierra Leone and Tanzania have trained to master and teach the new United Nations Course on Child Protection in the context of pre-deployment training for police personnel in peacekeeping operations.

During the 18 simulations of the nine modules included in the course, the instructors were able to test their child protection skills as well as their ability to convey the learning objectives of the course in a more practical way.
