The National Police of Timor-Leste (PNTL) has provided IT training for suku (village) officers (OPS) to help improve their level of understanding.

MP Albina Marçal said she considered the training was important because the duties of OPS was closely linked to the communities where they worked and so it was important they had good skills.

OPS Commander, Assistant Superintendent Antonio da Luz said that during the training suku officers would also be introduced information management systems (IMS).

As well as IMS, he said the seven-week training also covers computer basics, the electoral system and election laws.

He said it was important for OPS to have a good knowledge of IT so that they knew how to properly operate the laptops provided by the PNTL command for their work, as well as file police reports using IMS.

A total of 418 OPS from 442 sukus attended the training.

According to da Luz, 24 OPS did not take a part because they were attending other training for rank promotion, while others were sick. The command will provide training to those officers at a later date.

National MP Albina Marçal said she considered the training was important because the duties of OPS was closely linked to the communities where they worked and so it was important they had good skills.

“The institution has an obligation to train their members by improving their knowledge in important aspects,” she said

However, she also called on OPS to fulfill their duties by collaborating with the communities where they were based.

“They live in the sukus and should work closely with communities as a partner,” he said.
