A two week training program between the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and Port Security partners in Ghana, Togo and Benin has been held at the West African Regional Training Centre in Accra.
It was attended by instructors from the Stat team in Naples, Italy and trainees who are security personnel from the various ports including Tema port who were taken through courses like law enforcement tactics and port security.
As part of their course study, the team visited the Tema Port to undergo Port Vulnerability Assessment.
They were informed of the rigorous state of the art security procedures the Port Authority has devised in order to maintain optimum safety and protect all stakeholders who do business at the port.
Matt Lohr, the instructor from Naval Criminal Investigative Stat (NCIS) said the training was structured for port security personnel to identify vulnerability, and make recommendations on how to mitigate those vulnerabilities “to hopefully help to ensure that the port of Tema continues to be a safe port.”
