PESHAWAR: The United States awarded “Basic Criminal Investigations” training certificates to 19 women police officers from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) in a graduation ceremony held at Malik Saad Shaheed Police Lines on Thursday.
According to a press release from the US Consulate, it was the second class of K-P police investigators to complete this training.
The "Basic Criminal Investigations” course is part of a comprehensive training plan designed to enhance the investigative capabilities of the K-P police. It is part of the ongoing assistance given by the US State Department's Narcotics Affairs Section (NAS), Police Assistance Program.
