2ND PHYSICAL SECURITY AND STOCKPILE MANAGEMENT TRAINING OF TRAINERS COURSE

Director IPSTC Brig. C Mwazighe, alongside Regional Centre for Small Arms (RECSA) Representative, Brig Gen (Rtd) Chrito Simon Fataki officially opened the 2nd Physical Security and Stockpile Management (PSSM) TOT course on 6th May 2021. The 3-week long course drew 22 participants from EASF member states serving in military and police components.

PSSM aims at threat reduction. Now more than ever, the world is faced with increased threat to peace due to uncontrolled spread of Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) and stockpiles of Conventional Ammunitions (CA) and explosives. In Africa, this has highly jeopardized regional peace processes in many countries thus reduced growth and increased dependance on Aid assistance.
