PNTL resumes responsibilities over the Police Training Academy

11 September 2009, Dili – The Special Representative of tthe Secretary-General of the United Nations for Timor- Leste (SRSG) Atul Khare and Fransisco Guterres the Secretary of State for Security on behalf of Prime Minister Kay Rala Xanana Gusmão today presided over the ceremony marking the resumption of responsibilities by Polícia Nacional de Timor-Leste (PNTL) over the Police Training Center (Centro de Formação de Polícia) in Dili.

The Police Training Center is the fourth place, after three Districts, where the PNTL has resumed primary responsibility since the process started in May 2009 in the district of Lautem, and continued in June for the district of Oecussi and in Manatuto in July 2009.

The Government of Timor-Leste and UNMIT are jointly implementing the resumption process in a gradual manner – distriict by district, unit by unit. The decision for the PNTL to resume primary responsibility for the Police Training Center was made based on the result of rigorous assessments on the preparedness of PNTL. The assessments were conducted by joint teams comprising representatives of the Government of Timor-Leste and UNMIT, including PNTL and UNPOL, using mutually agreed criteria.

The Police Training Center is located in Dili, the capital city of Timor-Leste, and is responsible for the training and development of PNTL police officers. The Center receives support from Australia, Japan, and Portugal, as well from the United Nations.
