From 11th August to 22nd September, there is a course taking place in ‘the use of video surveillance within integral security, emergency response and criminal investigations’, with the aim of providing ECU 911 Integrated Security Service staff with the necessary cognitive tools to carry out their work.
The inauguration of the course took place at the ECU 911 facilities in the Itchimbia sector, and was attended by Patrick Mullee, Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Ecuador, Fernando Cordero, Minister for Security Coordination, and César Navas Vera, Director General of ECU 911.
The course is taught by British specialists from the College of Policing. The link established with these specialists will facilitate cooperation and training for ECU 911 staff in areas relevant to comprehensive public security.
A total of 40 participants will receive the training, including the best video surveillance supervisors from ECU 911 centres and staff from SIS ECU 911. The course will last 80 hours and is being taught in both Quito and Samborondón.
This is the first training session in video surveillance to be carried out in Ecuador. Its goals are to improve coordination between institutions and drive forward professional development, in this case via specialised operational staff in the area of video suveillance.
This course is a result of various meetings between SIS ECU 911, the College of Policing and the British Embassy in Quito, who have signed agreements for cooperation in the areas of public safety, specifically in the area of video surveillance training.
