Solomon Islands send police officers to Taiwan for personal protection training

The Solomon Islands Police Force has sent twelve officers to Taiwan to undergo training in close personal protection.

The officers departed for Taiwan on Monday and will undertake a two week training program fully funded by the Taiwanese Government.

Police personnel selected for future duty with the Close Personal Protection Unit will receive training in security movements for VIP’s, specialist driving skills, firearms, and self defence.

It is planned to send up to fifty police officers to Taiwan to undergo the training designed to provide a group of officers capable of providing security and protecting the Prime Minister and other dignitaries.
