A regional Police Corporate Capabilities Needs Assessment (CCNA) Workshop sponsored by the Australian Federal Police International Deployment Group’s Pacific Development Program-Regional is currently underway at the Warwick Hotel in Korolevu.  Senior Police Officers representing eleven police services in the region are in attendance.

The five day workshop (November 28 to December 2, 2016) is led by Acting Superintendent  Shane Robinson of the Australian Federal Police’s Pacific Police Development Program Regional International Operations and co-facilitated by the Pacific Islands Centre for Public Administration’s Consultant, Mr Viliame Rabici.

Acting Superintendent Robinson said that the objective of the workshop is to undertake an assessment of corporate capabilities across the broad range of corporate support functions in the Regional Police services which will allow them to assess current corporate capability, identify gaps, further training and advisory support requirements to meet current and future corporate capability requirements.

Mr Parmesh Chand, Director, Pacific Islands Centre for Public Administration, commented that he was pleased with the opportunity to continue to collaborate with the AFP’s PPDP-R to develop the capacity of the Regional Police Services.  The AFP PPDP-R and PICPA partnership was formed in 2013 and a number of assignments have been completed under this partnership.

The Pacific Police Development Program (PPDP) is an Australian Government initiative supporting a broad range of police development activities throughout the Pacific region.  The program works with police in Pacific nations on improving the rule of law as a prerequisite for economic, social and political development of the region.  The program is operating a regional component as well as country specific bi-lateral programs in Vanuatu, Samoa, Tonga, Papua New Guinea and Nauru.

PICPA is a specialist centre which responds to the identified needs and plans of Pacific Island Countries (PICs) for strengthened public administration to enable improved service delivery and faster economic growth.  The Centre is headed by a Director, with two Advisors, a Programme Manager and three support staff.  It is perfectly positioned within the University of the South Pacific (USP) to network and utilise the resource capabilities of the University for training and capacity building in project preparations, monitoring and evaluation, public finance management procurement, governance and leadership development etc.  The Centre is funded by the Government of Australia.
