Completion of the Training of the Second Group on Crash Investigation (I)Dec 1, 2016
On Thursday 1 December 2016 a graduation ceremony was held at the Police Officers’ Club for 27 candidates, nominated by General Department of Traffic, who during the period 6 November to 1 December 2016, completed basic course on crash investigation I. This is the second group to participate in this course following the participation of the first group of around 25 participants who also attended the same course in the preceding month (9 October-3 November 2016). The training, delivered by experts from Center of Public Safety of Northwestern University, was aimed at furthering trainees’ skills in conducting effective crash investigation such as identifying, describing and recording damage to vehicles, how to get useful information from roadway and people, understanding the five levels of crash investigation and how to take photographs of crash.
This training course represents the first in a series of training courses that will be delivered through 2016-2017. A number of successful participants from the two groups will be selected to attend the more specialized courses on vehicle dynamics and traffic crash reconstruction, to be held starting in January 2017.
This training programme is one of the initiatives of the project “Implementation of Comprehensive and Long Term Traffic and Transport Sector Strategy,” which is a joint partnership between Ministry of Interior (MOI), United Nations Development Programme and General Secretariat of Supreme Council for Planning and Development to help address traffic related challenges in the country.
