Ports and Marine security personnel acquire self defense training
Eight Ports and Marine securities in Luganville have gone through a two-day training on self defence training conducted by the police in Luganville.
The purpose of the training was to help Ports and Marine security gain skills on how to deal with international securities and also to protect government restricted areas which is one of the international ship and ports security requirements.
Eric Bob from the Tactical Response Group was the trainer at the two-day training.
Bob said the training conducted was the first of its kind especially to security officers. He said the Ports and Marine were the first government office in Luganville who send in their security officers to get special trainings on how to deal with international security. Bob said the training will be very useful and it will protect them as responsible people over the government properties in the future.
Captain Terry Ngwele assistant harbor master said after this training their security officers will be internationally recognised. This means they are qualified to deal with any local and international security issues.
“The department of Ports and Harbour has all the equipment like, handcuffs, and other security gears. But all we need is the training,” Ngwele said.
Terry Ngwele is responsible over the Ports Facility Security Officers in Luganville. The police are appealing to all security services around Luganville and especially the correctional services security to attend similar trainings that could enhance the skills of officers to be more productive in the security field that could protect them also.
