The Directorate of Criminal Investigations and Anti-Terror Police Unit will benefit from a counter-terrorism training program developed by the European Union.
Representatives from Spanish Police who are spearheading the program led by the project director Javier Hernandez, met the DCI director George Kinoti today at the headquarters to discuss the finer details of the program.
Kinoti acknowledged the importance of developing the skills of the officers, to respond to modern day security challenges.
The chief sleuth further noted that the training couldn’t have come at a better time, since violent extremists have taken advantage of the increasingly globalized world.
The first batch of officers to receive the training will leave the country in November for Spain, according to the organisers.
