The OSCE completed its third cascade training conducted for Tajik border officials from 17 June to 22 June 2019 in the town of Khorog, Tajikistan. The training was the last of a series of similar courses conducted earlier this year in the Khatlon and Sughd regions of Tajikistan. All courses were conducted by national experts of the Tajik Border Troops who are alumni of previous OSCE courses.
The three two-week training courses allowed 100 border officers to enhance their knowledge and skills in effectively conducting surveillance, first aid and operational planning. The training courses further covered patrolling, demining awareness, gender mainstreaming in border security, as well as canine services.
The OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe will continue to support Tajikistan in strengthening the capacities of its border troops.
