​Firearm policy to be designed

​A firearm policy will be designed for the firearm training program at the Bomana Police Training College.

Bomana Police Training Commandant, Perou N’Dranou, mentioned this during a firearm training session for a group of National Capital District police personnel this morning.

N’Dranou said this will make the program legal and mandated so that anyone who is in possession of firearms is required by law to undergo training.

He said the policy is in its early stages of development so for now, the training college is using only the procedures which are simple training instructions to develop trainings and programs for the police personnel.

After the positive response from the Police Headquarters, plans are underway now to look at more strategised ways to improve the skill and level of training in line with the control of firearms for officers in the country.

“It’s about time we had a policy in place and the benefits of this training will help our personnel save innocent lives and give back that confidence to the general public that we can do our jobs well and professionally out on the field,” adds N’Dranou.
