This project aims to enhance the professionalism of the Haitian National Police (HNP) through initial training and professional development for inspectors and commissioners. It supports the development of a new training curriculum and the development and implementation of the organizational and administrative structure for a training institution. Project activities include: (1) technical assistance to HNP for developing and implementing training programs using a skills-based approach; (2) train-the-trainer training; (3) development and implementation of the organizational and administrative structure for the National Police Academy and delivery of management training; (4) rehabilitation and preparation of temporary training premises; and (5) purchase of educational material and equipment. Activities planned in response to COVID-19 include outreach activities for populations adjacent to the PNA to limit the spread of the pandemic; food subsistence support for students as well as PNA employees, in addition to relaying the dissemination of MSPP communiqués and content (audio and video capsules).
