CIMIC operators in support of local police in order to enhance efficiency
Somalia, June 2022.
In recent days, with a donation ceremony, the CIMIC operators have delivered transceiver radio equipment in support of Wadajir District Police, included in the security sector projects.
The Police forces, both Benaadir Region and of Wadajir Districts, are engaged daily in the regulation of access to the city to vehicles and people.
To carry out this task, they need specific equipment, in particular materials that allow not only to set up and maintain checkpoints / slowdown posts, but also to communicate between the various control points, in order to limit, if not avoid, the infiltration of hostile elements of Al Shabaab.
The donation of Italian contingent, through the CIMIC Cell, guarantees the Police Forces a more effective and impactful action both on their operability and in reaching the level of Safe and Secure Environment (SASE) that the city of Mogadishu needs, especially in this delicate phase following the presidential elections last May.
The District Commissioner of Wadajir District, Mr. Bashir Mohamed Ali, Deputy District Commissioner, Mr. Ahmed Mohammud Dirie and General Secretary of District Ms. Shukri Ali Hirabe were present at the ceremony and expressed their gratitude for the constant commitment that CIMIC specialists are carrying out in the support to the local authorities.
