ENHANCING knowledge of security trends and leader effectiveness are some of the issues that director rehabilitation, ASP Viliame Bulewa hopes to highlight when he returns from a security course in Hawaii.
The assistant superintendent of prisons is attending a six-week course on Advanced Security Cooperation at the Hawaii-based Asia Pacific Centre for Security Studies (APCSS).
Designed for high-ranking military and law-enforcement officers including government officials, the course covers matters pertaining to foreign affairs, business and the media.
It is designed to advance knowledge, skills and networks related to multilateral security co-operation in the Asia-Pacific Region among mid-career security practitioners.
Emphasis is also placed on enhancing partnership through the formation of communities of interest in various areas of security practice.
In welcoming the participants, course manager Lieutenant Colonel Reese Evers said participants could expect to work at a high tempo, participate with their peers, and come away from the course with a rich understanding of security dynamics in the region.
He said one common theme cited throughout the region was that the nature of new security threats in the Asia-Pacific region required countries to act together co-operatively and collaboratively to solve the security challenges of the future.
