The Italian ambassador to Rwanda, Domenico Fornara paid a courtesy call to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dan Munyuza, on Tuesday, at the Rwanda National Police (RNP) General Headquarters in Kacyiru.
The visit was inline with the existing working relations between Rwanda and Italy.
IGP Munyuza and His Excellency Domenico discussed measures to strengthen partnership between RNP and Carabinieri.
Carabiniere is the National Gendarmerie of Italy, policing both military and civilian populations.
HE Domenico described the bilateral cooperation between RNP and Carabinieri as “excellent.”
The partnership is guided by the cooperation pact signed in January 2017, which elaborates exchange of best practices and capacity building in varied areas.
The agreement focuses mainly on training; counter-terrorism, public order management, traffic and road safety, peace support operations, aviation security, border security and cybercrime investigations, among others.
Under this framework, hundreds of Rwandan Police officers have been trained in various policing disciplines such as Counter Terrorism, Aviation Security, Road Safety and Traffic Management, Public Order Management, Canine Handling and Special Forces Training.
