Kenya is hosting a regional training course for law enforcement officials from Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda with the objective of working with the partner countries to strengthen the capacities for criminal intelligence analysis.

From 14 to 25 October 2019, Kenya is hosting a regional training course for law enforcement officials from Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.  The objective of the training course is to work with the partner countries to strengthen the capacities for criminal intelligence analysis.  This will allow investigators and prosecutors to build strong cases against suspects and achieve a higher rate of convictions in court.

The course is facilitated by Interpol in the context of the EU-financed ENACT project on strengthening African capacities to more effectively fight transnational organised crime.

The regional training course was officially opened by the Deputy Director of Criminal Investigations of the Republic of Kenya.  The Deputy Director expressed his appreciation to Interpol for this opportunity offered to law enforcement agencies in the region to improve their skills and stay ahead in the fight against criminal cartels.

The representative of Interpol at the meeting expressed gratitude to the EU for its generous contribution to ENACT and for financing the ten-day intensive course, which is taking place in Mombasa.
