More Training Programs Proposed for Greek Police Officers

ATHENS – The New Democracy government has set out a program of additional training for Greek police officers and coordinating policies, changing the structure of the Citizen Protection Ministry and the police academy.

Minister Mihalis Chrysohoidis presented the scheme revising the training programs for the Greek Police (ELAS) which aims to adapt officers to new trends in delinquency and crime by creating new structures, reducing bureaucracy, improve communication with the public, as well as the training of police officers to use new technological tools.

For the Police Academy, the bill aims to increase its autonomy, upgrade its curriculum, and place an emphasis on continuing education and training, also said Kathimerini.
