“One organization cannot provide total security and the only way is for a collective security trainings,” he added.

The main agendas discussed was about issue relating to the Joint Forces College, the challenges faced since its reintroduction as well as recommendations and suggestions put forward to be considered later in future.

“Logistics, manpower and funding are some of the few things we discussed in this first review.”

Chief of Training for all three forces; CS Chief Inspector, Redmond Danjiri, Defence Captain (N), Philip Polewara and RPNGC Chief Superintendent, Rigga Neggi all agreed that that reviews as such is an important aspect of the college.

The current number of officers in the Joint Force College stands with a total of 36 joint instructors, 30 joint senior cadets and 52 junior joint cadet’s altogether who have started their course three weeks prior to the conference.
