Proposal on firearms set for police conference

Bomana Police Training College Commandant, Perou N’Dranou, says a lot of work has been put into this proposal.

“Ultimately, the aim is to put in a proper firearm policy so that in future, if approved, on an annual basis, an officer is given a permit to possess or use the firearm,” says N’Dranou.

This will allow an officer to possess or carry a firearm, often subject to a number of conditions or restrictions in regard to requirement or the completion of a firearm safety course, as well as background checks.

13 officers complete firearm training

The program started on Monday, which saw 12 men and a woman take part in both theory and practical training about the law and the use of firearms.

Training Commandant Perou N’Dranou says this training program will be rolled out to other parts of the country as well.

He says the participants who completed this course are from Central and NCD and are the first batch to redo this rehabilitation program.
