From 22 July to 26 July 2019, the State Border Guard College of Latvia, in cooperation with the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), has organised a dog handler training course for seven law enforcement officers from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
This particular dog handler training offered in Latvia supports development of skills and capacities in line with European Union standards for law enforcement agencies of Central Asian countries, improving border surveillance and monitoring in Central Asia with attention to detection and tracking of people, objects, and narcotic substances.
Dog handler training implements decisions reflected in the 2018 NATO Brussels Summit Declaration on strengthening the resilience of partner countries and promoting stability in the region.
Training takes place at the Dog Handler Training Centre of the State Border Guard College’s K9 Division in Rezekne, Latvia. Funding for this dog handler training is covered by the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as the NATO and UNODC project for combatting drugs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central Asia.
