Audiovisual course on disciplinary investigation for the National Civil Police of El Salvador

El Salvador, 11 June 2020. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Central America and the Caribbean (UNODC ROPAN) provided technical assistance to the Training Unit of the Disciplinary Investigation Unit in developing the online video-course "Disciplinary Investigation".

This audiovisual training is made possible with technical assistance from the Bureau of Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL) of the United States.

This course benefits, initially, 294 disciplinary investigators (72 women and 223 men) from the Disciplinary Investigation Unit and the 144 disciplinary sections deployed nationwide. Subsequently, the course will be made available to the National Public Security Academy for the purpose of adding to the teaching materials in its video library and making them available to all National Civil Police personnel.

Currently, four video courses have been developed on the following topics: "The democratic police", "Police values", "Police discipline" and "Threats to police discipline".

These videos, which topics are general and not specific to disciplinary investigations, have made it possible to reach an agreement with the heads of the Anti-Narcotics Division (DAN) and the Victim and Witness Protection Division to socialize with the personnel in charge, and have benefited 327 police officers in the DAN (56 women and 267 men) and 333 (41 women and 292 men) in the DPVT.

The aim of this audiovisual training is to create a more professional police force that is aware of and respects human rights and the rule of law and is committed to service.
