PNG Security personnel arrive from Israel after intensive training

Staff Reporter 7/14/2014 | |
THE 25 security personnel who went to Israel for intensive training have returned home after successfully completing their course.
The 25 (10 PNG Defence Force soldiers and 15 policemen) underwent specialised anti-terrorism, anti-crime and close protection training at the IMI Academy For Advanced Security and anti-terror training outside Tel Aviv.
They left for Israel on June 7 and returned  on July 9.
The training programme was made possible through an agreement signed between Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Natanyahu during an official visit to the Holy Land last year.
The 25 were described as outstanding ambassadors for PNG during their stay in Israel.
Their discipline and hard work won the admiration of their trainers who are former veteran Israeli Army soldiers, and the chief executive officer of the academy, Amiram Maor, wrote to Prime Minister Peter O’Neill praising them for their obedience, hard work and dedication to learning.
The 25 personnel will in turn become security trainers for police and defence personnel who will be deployed for the 2015 Pacific Games.
PNG Defence and police personnel to be deployed for the APEC Meeting in Port Moresby in 2018 will be sent to Israel starting next year for a similar training under the agreement reached with the Israeli Government.
