Ukraine’s first patrol police driving instructors ready to train their colleagues

September 12, 2018

Six Ukrainian patrol police officers have become the first group of certified defensive driving instructors in their organisation after a training organised by the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) Ukraine.

They are now qualified and ready to train their colleagues across Ukraine. Over a six-week period, the officers were trained in how to safely manoeuvre vehicles in difficult conditions and how to help others develop these skills.

In total, 12 defensive driving instructors will have been trained with EUAM’s support by the end of September.

EUAM is an unarmed, non-executive civilian mission of the European Union, which aims to strengthen and support reform in Ukraine’s state law enforcement agencies. The mission provides strategic advice to the Ukrainian authorities, supported by operational activity, including training to develop sustainable, accountable and efficient security services that strengthen the rule of law.
