    African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) officials ended a weeklong training for Somali Police Force (SPF) officers in Mogadishu on combatting violent extremism in communities.

    ATMIS Police Component organized the training to improve Somali Police Force capabilities in community policing and crime prevention.

    General Osman Abdullahi Mohamed, Deputy Commissioner of the Somali Police Force, praised the AU peacekeeping force for their efforts to improve the Police Force’s capabilities to handle criminal problems.

    The cops who benefited from the training expressed gratitude to ATMIS workers for the session, saying it will help them overcome crimes, handle community concerns professionally, and increase service efficiency.

    The trainees were guided through a variety of topics, including intelligence collection, the role of community safety volunteers, and Somalia’s legal framework for policing.

    This is not the first time the mission has tried a program to improve the Somali Police Force’s capabilities and understanding.

    ATMIS has lately participated in workshops and training for Somali police officials across the country in order to improve their crime prevention abilities and knowledge as they prepare to take over security responsibilities from the departing peacekeeping forces.
