Officers completed two weeks of Close Personal Protection training


Over a handful of Police Officers completed two weeks of  Close Personal Protection (CPP) training. 

Police Commissioner Auapa’au Logoitino Filipo delivered the keynote address, where the Officers were urged to use the skills and knowledge they acquired during this crucial training.   

It is part of the Ministry’s efforts to gear up its Officers for next year’s upcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). 

Sergeant Graham Wilson of the Australian Federal Police expressed gratitude on behalf of his team for being here in Samoa to conduct this critical training. 

They hope to return to Samoa to conduct more training for the Samoa Police, Prisons & Corrections Service.

CPP training was delivered by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) to assist Samoa Police in preparing for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) next year. 

The AFP has partnered with the Samoa Police for many years to deliver CPP training.

The training is being coordinated by the Samoa Australia Police Partnership (SAPP) and represents the first in a training series conducted to support CHOGM.
