Ukraine asks Australia for help in training policemen

Ukraine police officers will be trained using the Australian State Police intensive program, which includes conducting investigations of serious crimes.

The website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs says that the Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov agreed to this during his visit to the Australian police college. Avakov invited college representatives to visit the Ukrainian patrol police academy and assist in the preparation of specialized training programs.

“The Ukrainian police has 140,000 workers. Our key partners in guiding their professional development are the US, Canada, and the EU. Australia’s experience in police training, especially in the area of investigating serious crimes will be valuable for Ukrainian law enforcement officers,” stated Avakov.

The Australian Police College is located in Canberra. There they have a six-month basic course preparing various police personnel, from recruits to senior officers. Further training depends on selected qualifications.

In addition, the Australian Police have an international training center in Jakarta, Indonesia. It develops a training program for all international partners.
