Road Policing Capacity Building Training Kicks Off in Viet Nam

The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) has recently commenced delivery of road policing capacity building training in Viet Nam, delivered under the Blomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS) programme.  

GRSP Senior Road Policing Advisor Craig Gillard was supported by Dennis Watson, GRSP Road Policing Consultant, to jointly present to road policing specialists in Hanoi with support from Peoples Police Academy (PPA), our programme delivery partners in Vietnam. The initial presentation workshops focused on ‘road policing leadership’ and ‘data-led enforcement’ global best practice and saw more than 100 Hanoi traffic police come together to learn, discuss and share best practice methodologies. 

GRSP has committed to further capacity building training throughout 2023 in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, with the programme also extending to Da Nang later in the year. Future topics will address the identified key road safety risk factors across Viet Nam aimed at reducing road deaths and injury. The initial training has been well received by participants and will provide a strong foundation for future collaborative training to be undertaken.
