Cops get skills in defensive driving

Four police officers have graduated from a two-week defensive driving training with 19 other officers from all areas of Samoa Police Service (SPS). 

The aim of the training is to prevent traffic accidents and enhance driver safety – to ensure that all sworn staff are trained to meet the demands of policing work. 

Commissioner of Police, Fuiavailiili Egon Keil, encouraged the members to utilise the knowledge received from the trainings to properly use SPS resources (police vehicles) along with traffic enforcement equipment provided to the Police. 

“This in return will improve the professional work of the Samoa Police,” he said.

The graduation was attended also by the SPS executive, and members of the senior management – to officially close the two trainings, and congratulate the officers for making use of the opportunities.  

The current statistics of police officers who have completed the DDC course are a total of 121, whereas 122 officers have completed the road safety enforcement Equipment Trainings.
