The EU Police Co-coordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support (Eupol Copps) launched a six-week training course for Palestinian Judicial Police at its headquarters in Ramallah on Sunday.

Eupol Copps said in a statement that the course will be attended by 98 officers who will receive instructions from three experts from Austria, Germany and Slovenia. After their qualification, the officers will be deployed in Judicial Police Offices in Salfit, Nablus, and Jenin in the West Bank.

Launched by the European Council in 2005, Eupol Copps aims to help develop a Palestinian criminal justice system, and includes field advisers that visit Palestinian police stations around the West Bank to provide training and equipment.

The new course is aimed at giving Palestinian judicial police officers knowledge on managing security, the handling of detainees, carrying out court rulings, and filing requests to the Palestinian Judicial Police in Ramallah.

A ceremony marking the start of the course was presided over by Brigadier-General Al Museimi, Deputy Chief of PA Police, and Judicial Police Chief Lieutenant Colonel Iyad Shtieh, as well as course instructors and senior officers from Eupol Copps.
