Training of Russian and Chinese officers in today’s conditions was discussed at the Heilongjiang Vocational Institute of the Chinese Ministry of Public Security.
At the end of June, the Russian delegation of the Far-Eastern Legal University of the Russian MIA took part in the international conference held in Harbin, the People’s Republic of China. The participants discussed training of the staff for the law enforcement bodies in the border regions of Russia and China required to successfully combat transnational crime. The agenda also included issues related to usage of modern education techniques and experience exchange in training policemen of the two states.
In the course of the trip, officers learnt about the organization of the educational activities at the Heilongjiang Institute, saw the classrooms, shooting ranges, polygons and samples of forensic equipment and firearms used by the Chinese police.
“The polygons at the Institute’s premises are what have impressed us most. These are models of a standard Chinese police station with modern equipment, rooms for identifications and reconciliation, and a section with road surface marking that has traffic lights, road signs and means for recording road rules violations by road users. All this is efficiently used to practice skills of students who will in future join various divisions of China’s Ministry of Public Security. All the participants in the conference agreed that mastering practical skills in the course of training is what matters most,” said the head of the delegation, Deputy Chief for Human Resources of the Far-Eastern Legal University of the Russian MIA Colonel of Police Vyacheslav Klimachkov.
Assistant Chief for International Cooperation of the Far-Eastern Legal University of the Russian MIA Lieutenant Colonel of Police Klimenty Brazhensky also presented his report at the conference. Based on the results of work of the conference, the host party prepared collections of scientific materials. They include 15 scientific articles written by employees of the Far-Eastern Legal University of the Russian MIA and its Vladivostok Branch.
