MONROVIA, Dec 10 (LINA) -The Justice Ministry in collaboration with the Ministry of Gender and Development and international partners including the UN Women Agency Tuesday launched the Basic Gender Training Manual for the Security Sector in Liberia.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Deputy Justice Minister for Codification Counselor Victoria Sherman Leng, described the Training Manual as an essential part of the security sector reform process.

She said the manual also buttresses efforts at creating an accountable and participatory security sector that meets the requirements of democratic governance and effective delivery of security and justice services to citizens.

Cllr. Leng said the training manual will provide integrated gender issues into the standard curriculum of security sector personnel training and education, as well as provide specific training on gender issues, such as interview techniques for victims of human trafficking or institutional policies on sexual harassment.

Also speaking, the Commandant of the Liberia National Police Training Academy, Samuel F. Dakana, lauded the Justice Ministry and partners for producing the basic Gender Training Manual for the Security Sector in Liberia.

He promised to include it in the training curriculum of the Police Training Academy to improve the knowledge of trainees about gender issues.

For her part, Gender and Development Minister Julia Duncan Cassel hoped the manual would be used for the intended purpose.
