The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) will help the Myanmar Police Force (MPF) upgrade its training curriculum, state media reported on 17 May quoting Jeremy Douglas the UNODC’s resident representative to Myanmar.

Mr Douglas stressed the need for greater awareness on law and human rights by Myanmar police officers. Courses in areas such as public services, economic crime and corruption are set to be included in the curricula.

The curriculum renewal process, which will be led by the UNODC, is scheduled to begin on 30 May and is set for completion on 31 December this year.
