U.S. Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. John Carwile attended closing ceremony for a police training course on human rights today. Twenty-five Nepali police officers participated in the two-week Human Rights and Democratic Policing (HRDP) training course. This U.S. Embassy-provided training of trainers course was designed to bring together a core team of police trainers around the theme of human rights and law enforcement. The U.S. Embassy is also equipping the police trainers with computers and other aids to be used in delivering this training program throughout their organization. A second version of this training will be offered to the Armed Police Force in February. This course taught concepts such as international standards for human rights in law enforcement, ethical and legal police conduct, and police non-discrimination. Students were also taught the application of fair practices in matters of command, management and control.
