ALGIERS-The National Police Chief Major General Abdelghani Hamel stressed Thursday in Algiers the management of events related to the prevention of chemical, biological, nuclear and explosive risks had to be "comprehensive and transversal."
The management of these risks "cannot be dealt with by one ministry. The approach must be comprehensive and transversal, and must be developed in an interministerial, indeed an international context," stressed Hamel at the closing ceremony of the training session on the prevention of chemical, biological, radiologic, nuclear and explosive risks (CBRNE) for the executives of the Directorate General of National Police (DGSN).
"For a better management of this kind of threats, we cannot efficiently affirm our approaches without taking advantage of international experience including OIPC Interpol, which brings operational support to member countries through its technical cooperation programs.
Such approaches require support to inquiries and exchanges of information and intelligence, training projects and awareness-raising campaigns on CBRNE based on the experiences gained by various countries and international specialized bodies.
This training "is a precious opportunity to exchange and debate with expert trainers on this issue," said Major General Hamel, highlighting "the increasing interest of our countries committed to a tireless fight against terrorism and criminal activities in developing proactive approaches and appropriate responses through strengthening capacities, technical assistance and consolidation of cooperation."
