MANILA/17 October 2012—The training courses on Combat Zone Post Blast Investigations conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for over a hundred Philippine security forces recently ended, with best practices in police work shared.

A news release issued by the U.S. Embassy in Manila said that said training courses were held on 24 September to 6 October this year, for selected personnel of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Philippine Army (PA), the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), and the PNP Special Action Forces.

Said training was “designed to provide instruction on using expedited methods for collecting evidence at crime scenes that cannot be maintained due to combat or other influences.”  The training provided FBI instructors a forum where they shared best practices in the collection and preservation of evidence, identification of improvised explosive devices, and processing of crime scenes.

“This is yet another example where our two countries have come together to make the world safer for the public and to ensure that law enforcement has the best skills to address terrorism and other threats,”   US Ambassador Harry K. Thomas, Jr. said.

The US envoy then stated that his government will continue to pursue collaborative efforts in the fight against criminality in the Philippines.  (The PhilSouth Angle)
