Chief of Public Security and Chairman of the Scientific Council of Bahrain’s Royal Academy of Police (RAP), Lt-General Tariq Al Hassan, and Vice-Chancellor of the UK-based University of Huddersfield, Professor Andrew Ball, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
The agreement includes introducing two master’s degree programs on cybersecurity and human rights and justice in RAP’s programs, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported.
The agreement was signed on the sideline of a discussion session between the two sides which was attended by the RAP Commander, Director of Legal Affairs and the University’s Projects Manager.
The Chief of Public Security highlighted that the reform era of His Majesty the King is the primary source for developing security, academic and training performance. He continued to say that the development of performance also comes as part of the directives of Interior Minister, General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, to enhance the training system via the signing of agreements and cooperation with prestigious universities and academic and training institutes.
He hailed the keenness of the Interior Minister to adopt new methods and advanced human rights curricula based on the use of modern technology in forensic science and depending on evidence rather than confessions.
The UK official asserted the dedication of the university to boost cooperation with the academy to promote the workforce through specialized security programs. He hailed the cooperation and ties between the two institutions.
