Ivory Coast delegation visit Rwanda National Police

A team of sixteen officials from Ivory Coast visited the Rwanda National Police General Headquarters on Friday as part of their study tour in the country and lauded the existing cooperation between the two countries.

The delegation headed by Ouattara Yra Elise, the Director General in the Ministry of Gender and Family Promotion in Ivory Coast was received by the Inspector General of Police, Emmanuel K. Gasana and other commissioners and senior Police officers.
 
They were explained on the strategies in place to combat policing challenges including community-based policing and how RNP works with other regional forces to combat transnational crimes.
 
Ouattara said they visited RNP to learn from its success to help them transform their police force back home.
 
“Rwanda National Police went through similar policing challenges in the past like the ones we are currently encountering in Ivory Coast. I have no doubt that the experience we gained will be of great help to address such challenges back home,” Ouattara said.
 
The IGP said the two countries share past experience of conflicts and added that cooperation among Police forces is paramount to deal with cross-border crimes.
 
“Cooperation is a fundamental tool to ensure safety and stability of citizens,” he said.
 
“Today, there is lots of emerging crimes such as terrorism, cyber-crimes, human trafficking and other cross boarder crimes. We, therefore, need to cooperate as law enforcing institutions to address such challenges,” he said.
 
The team include Police officers, staff from internal and Justice Ministries, civil society, UN and Non Governmental Organizations.
 
They also visited the Anti-GBV office and Isange One-Stop centre, among others.
