The first Nauru police to take part in the United Nations peacekeeping mission in South Sudan departed last month (July 17), the Nauru Government says.

Superintendent Imran Scotty, Sergeant Drusky Dabadauw and Senior Constable Jacaranda Akibwib were selected after successfully completing a four-week United Nations Police (UNPOL) pre-deployment training programme in Ankara, Turkey in February.

The one-year unarmed mission will mostly focus on community oriented policing and outreach programmes. This will enhance peace and security and help increase the public’s trust in the police and other law enforcement agencies of the host state.

The team is expected to undergo orientation and additional pre-deployment training once they arrive at Juba, South Sudan.
