Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police for Training and Manpower Development, William K. Mulbah, will today leave for the United States to represent West Africa in a three-month training program at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) National Academy.
Mulbah told reporters yesterday at the National Police Training Academy in Paynesville outside Monrovia, that he will represent the West Africa sub-region at the highest level and will make Liberia proud.
He said his nomination came after a rigorous vetting process by the legal attaché at the United States Embassy near Dakar, Senegal. This is the 268th Session of the FBI’s prestigious National Academy in Quantico, USA.
DIG Mulbah said being chosen to take part in the training bodes well for West Africa at large and Liberia in particular because it indicates that the security sector is doing well. He added: “The LNP is pleased to have such a representation at the FBI National Academy in the USA.”
According to the DIG, the three months training will begin on Monday, April 3, and end in June. He said his representation also shows the level of reform taking place in the security sector, particularly in the LNP.
He said his training will also involve legal training, informant development, investigative techniques, ethics, surveillance, interviewing, interrogation, intelligence, firearms, physical fitness, defensive tactics and practical application exercises (arrest scenarios) among others.
