Kathmandu, 2 December 2011 – A six-day long training to senior police officers on 'Justice for Children' concluded on 30 November with a formal programme in Godavari Resort, Godavari, Kathmandu.
The training programme involved 25 Senior Police Officers who will further train 180 Junior Police Officers. The training equips the police officers on how to interact in a sensitive manner with children and women who come in contact with the justice system and how to cope with the difficult and stressful situations the Police face every day.
Meanwhile, Mr. Naresh Gurung, Additional Inspector General of Police said, "The training has helped the Police Officers to build their knowledge in the area of Justice for Children and how they should implement it practically." He also stressed on the behavioural implementation of learning of the training.
"These are important achievements and I encourage the Nepal Police to gradually extend the coverage of the Women and Children Service Centres to the rest of the country," added Ms. Singer.
