Samoa Police, Prisons & Corrections Services Bolster Security with Ongoing Close Personal Protection Course

In anticipation of the upcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), the Samoa Police, Prisons & Corrections Services have been diligently preparing through an ongoing Close Personal Protection (CPP) course. Commencing earlier this year and continuing to date, the two-week training program is equipping officers with essential skills to ensure the safety of dignitaries and high-profile individuals during the event.
Led by seasoned instructors, the CPP course covers vital topics such as threat assessment, crisis response, and emergency first aid. Participants have been undergoing rigorous training exercises to simulate real-life scenarios and develop the situational awareness necessary for effective close protection operations.
This proactive measure highlights SPPCS’s commitment to maintaining security standards during CHOGM and beyond. By investing in ongoing specialized training programs like CPP, SPPCS demonstrates its dedication to ensuring public safety and upholding the rule of law.
As the course progresses, officers are continuously honing their skills to fulfill their roles in safeguarding CHOGM participants and visitors. With professionalism and diligence, Samoa’s security forces remain poised to provide a secure environment for the prestigious gathering.
