Samoa Police, Prisons & Corrections Services members are actively preparing for the upcoming By-elections with training sessions. Proper preparation is crucial to ensure a smooth and secure electoral process.
Training sessions are essential to equip law enforcement officers with the knowledge and skills to manage security and maintain order during elections. By-elections can be challenging, and well-prepared officers are key to ensuring a fair and safe voting process.
A two-day training session suggests a comprehensive program covering various aspects of election security. This extended duration should allow officers to thoroughly explore different scenarios and understand their roles.
The training should ideally cover various topics, including crowd control, conflict resolution, election laws, and regulations, handling of sensitive materials, communication protocols, and contingency planning for different situations that may arise during the By-elections.
Such training efforts are critical to maintaining the integrity of the electoral process and upholding the principles of democracy. It’s a positive step towards ensuring the By-elections are conducted smoothly and securely.
The Office of the Electoral Commission conducts these sessions.
