Training Session at the Fukui Prefectural Police Department, “Arrival On Scene is Quick”
Seven staff from the Indonesian National Police participated in a training session held by the Fukui Prefectural Police Department. On November 19th, the officers visited the Ikuhisa Police Station and experienced the station’s operations.
From 2001, the National Police Agency and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has been carrying out the “Support Program for Reform of Indonesian National Police”. The training session hosted by the Fukui Prefectural Police Department, held from November 18, is one of the events within the scope of the program. Until November 20, the seven Indonesian police staff, ranking between Japan’s equivalent of Police Officer to Police Commissioner, studied a variety of topics including about the Prefectural Police Headquarters. They also learned about the organizational management laws ad general education courses held at the Fukui Prefectural Police Academy. They then visited the Ikuhisa Police Station after the lecture, held at the Fukui Police Station, concerning the management and operations of police stations in Japan. The seven Indonesian police staff were actively asking questions through the sessions.
“Regardless of the personnel responding, the Japanese police officers are quick to act, taking little time from receive a report of an occurrence to arriving on scene. This will serve as a good reference,” says an Indonesian Major General (equivalent rank to a Police Commissioner).
