UNODC supports expert meeting on police training in Kazakhstan 

From 27 to 29 September 2022, UNODC organized an expert meeting on good practices in police training under the framework of the police reform initiative in Kazakhstan. The three-day event, held in Aktobe Law Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Kazakhstan, was attended by 32 representatives of the Ministry and faculty of national police training institutions.

Participants discussed issues related to strengthening teaching skills and quality assurance of police training. They were introduced to interactive methods for the development, delivery and assessment of police training curricula.

“Improving teaching methods through professional development of instructors of police training institutions, including learning of international experience is an essential prerequisite for quality training of future police officers,’’ -said Altai Baisultanov, the Head of the Aktobe Law Institute.

Experts from the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia spoke about advanced practices and tools in enhancing the skills and building the capacity of police instructors in their country.

UNODC Project Manager, Wendy O’Brien, said that “the event provides a unique opportunity for police trainers to engage in peer-to-peer knowledge exchange, and an extended dialogue on international experience in teaching in police training institutions”.

To complement the expert presentations from police academy officials from Georgia, a police training expert from Lithuania shared information about the Lithuanian police educational system and useful tips on how to develop police course curricula and teaching plans.

The event concluded with discussion on strengthening the curricula of national police training institutions in Kazakhstan, and the presentation of a comparative report on international police training curricula.

The UNODC project is carried out with financial support from the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs of the U.S. Department of State (INL).
