AKIPRESS.COM - border fence Twenty officers from the State Border Service of Turkmenistan will take part in a training course on border patrol which was launched at the Imamnazar border crossing point on the Turkmen-Afghan border on August 25.

Two international trainers will deliver the 45-day course, which is organized as part of an OSCE extra-budgetary project on strengthening border guard capacities in Turkmenistan, which is funded by the governments of Luxembourg and the United States.

The course seeks to provide Patrol Leaders from the State Border Service with knowledge and skills at the instructor- and team leader-level in tactical patrolling. It is expected that eight officials of the Border Police of Afghanistan will join the training event in September to enhance their skills in detecting and interdicting illegal cross-border movements.

The general patrol course, which will conclude in October 2014, will be followed by specialized patrol training courses which are planned to be held in spring 2015.

The project is being conducted as part of the OSCE Border Security and Management Concept (BSMC) as well as additional OSCE Ministerial Council Decisions regarding engagement with Afghanistan and addressing transnational threats. The project aims to strengthen the capacities of the State Border Service of Turkmenistan to patrol its state borders by the means of using innovative patrolling, surveillance and other border security methods and techniques.
