YEA’s Community Protection Officer training starts


    Three thousand out of the 15,000 Ghanaian youth engaged by the Youth Employment Authority (YEA) will begin training today, Saturday, 21 October, 2017 under the Community Protection Personnel programme.

    The training will be conducted in five police training schools across the country.

    The three weeks training will be in five batches, with 3000 personnel to be trained at a time.

    This was announced by the YEA PRO, Mohammed Awal.

    The Community Protection Officer programme, organised in collaboration with the Ghana Police Service, is expected to activate the consciousness of the Ghanaian in crime prevention, social justice and community welfare.

    The Police Service said the programme will introduce a more professional, cost effective and community friendly model of policing, where state resources budgeted for security can be shared to minimise youth unemployment.
