Cooperation activities continue between the Spanish Guardia Civil, FIIAPP and Senegalese Public Institutions to improve the protection of public spaces
The Spanish representation of the project had the opportunity to meet with the Deputy Chief of the Senegalese National Gendarmerie, the director of CICO and the project's Point of Contact (PoC) for the Senegalese National Police, amongst other key stakeholders.
From 12 to 15 April 2021, the CT Public Spaces project team carried out its third mission to Dakar with the aim of coordinating, together with the 3 partner institutions of the project in Senegal, the implementation of the training activities to be carried out both there and in Spain.
The Spanish representation of the project, formed by the management team, coordination teams and a key expert from the Guardia Civil and FIIAPP, had the opportunity to meet with the Deputy Chief of the Senegalese National Gendarmerie, the director of CICO (the Inter-Ministerial Coordination Panel for Counter-Terrorism Operations in Senegal), and the project's Point of Contact (PoC) for the Senegalese National Police. These meetings served to define the next activities, establish the places where the training will take place and review the students’ profile, stressing the importance of women’s participation in the project's initiatives. Thus, agreements have been reached for the development of 4 training courses in Logroño, in the months of May and June, in the areas of command and control, tactical patrol, risk analysis, drones and counter-drones. In Dakar, work will focus on capacity building for precision marksmen, intervention dog handlers and explosives detection dog handlers.
