Development of CBRN training programme for police officers

Development of CBRN training programme for police officers

Terrorist activities involving the use of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) materials constitute a new threat and the risk of using them as a tool has evoked an urgent need for undertaking numerous countermeasures. Police officers from local patrol units are those responders who arrive to the action scene first. While police provides training for conducting operations in CBRN environment to special anti-terrorism units, those units arrive at the scene of action later. The general aim of CBRN-POL project is to create a modern, multidisciplinary CBRN training curriculum and educational materials for police officers. The scope of the educational programme shall meet the demand for safe, responsible and effective behaviour of police officers on scene of intentionally induced incident involving CBRN materials. This project will increase the capacity of police officers for detection, management of crisis and mitigation of CBRN risks not only in the partner countries but also in the other EU countries.
