Siem Reap provincial police on Sunday held talks with a delegation from China’s Shanghai Security and Alarm Association to establish a private security training centre in Cambodia.
Major General Tith Narong, chief of provincial police, today said that he and private security management bureau officials met with the delegation and discussed security improvement and cooperation.
“The main focus was about how to improve security and strengthen cooperation,” Maj Gen Narong said.
Captain Tan Sambo, chief of the private security management bureau, said that the delegation from China is aiming to establish a school in order to train private security personnel.
“They wanted to pay us a visit and greet our police officers. They also wanted to do a presentation on a private security training centre in China they built,” Cap Sambo said. “They said private security guards should first be trained at a professional school before being allowed on the job.”
“They said that their private security guards have professional standards and expressed a desire to open schools in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville and Siem Reap,” he added. “However, the plan is still vague.”
