279 new Iraqi police officers

On Tuesday, 279 new Iraqi police officers graduated from a 45 day training program in Wassit, a province in eastern Iraq, according to Aswat al-Iraq, an independent Iraqi news source.

Othman al-Rubaei, a media source for the Wassit Police Department, said the officers graduated from the border forces training center in Kut.

“The new cops received during 45 days of theoretical lessons on ways to use different weapons, drills on security raids, investigations, dealings with suspects and human rights,” he said.

The new officers represent the continued efforts of the Iraqi government in taking on more security responsibility in the country.
