Global Maritime Crime Program (GMCP) of United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime conducted four modules of two days training sessions in judgemental training for SLCG personnel at Advanced Training Center (ATC) Mirissa from 24th August 2021 to 03rd September 2021. This is the first training programme of this nature in Sri Lanka which was delivered by a qualified instructor from UNODC and 32 numbers of SLCG personnel completed their training during above period.

The training was aimed to improve individual judgmental skills on use of force in various simulated situations. Participants were exposed to maximum numbers of animated and simulated situations to improve lawful, quick, effective, accurate action and decision making in complex working environments. All participants were able to understand the own limitation and requirement of very quick and accurate analytical decision making in performing law enforcement duties. The knowledge and especially practical experience gained from this course would directly benefit for participants to conduct their duties in effective and efficient manner.

The head of the Global Maritime Crime Program, UNODC Mr. Alan Cole and high-level delegation of UNODC in Sri Lanka visited CGHQ to observe the conduct of training programme on 01st September 2021. The Director General Sri Lanka Coast Guard appreciated service rendered to enhance capacity building of SLCG by UNODC and handed over a token of appreciation to Mr. Alan Cole. The delegation conducted field visit at SLCG headquarters and inspected the training facilities at SLCG in order to conduct further law enforcement training with SLCG personnel, members of regional and global Law enforcement organizations.
