Palestine: progress made by EUPOL COPPS in security and justice
March 2, 2016
EUPOL COPPS (the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support) recently released the February 2016 edition of its newsletter, in which it presents its various activities. These include the conclusion of a four-day training session for officers of the Palestinian Civil Police (PCP) to strengthen their capacity to use a new traffic system with the goal of reducing the number of road accidents.
The newsletter also contains a message from ‘EUPOL COPPS’ Head of Mission Rodolphe Mauget, who writes: “On 4 February, the Committee for Civilian Aspects of Crisis Management (Civ Com) issued its advice to the EUPOL COPPS mission. The text was very positive and welcomed EUPOL COPPS’ progress in the security and justice sectors in support of the Palestinian Authority (PA) both at strategic and operational level, despite a difficult political climate.”
