The Norwegain National Police Directorate (POD), as a supporting partner to the Training for Peace (TfP) Programme, visited the Malawi Police in Lilongwe from 24-26 February 2015 . The visit was to support the establishment of a Peace Support Operation (PSO) office at the Police Headquarters. The newly established PSO office is answerable to the Director of operations which is also linked to the Director of Training. The PSO office is aimed to manage all issues related to PSOs for Malawi Police.

One of the pre-deployment courses was conducted by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and  others by Kofi Annan International Training Centre (KAIPTC). Currently, Malawi Police has 264 prepared police officers, in which 59 are female. The newly established PSO office is expected to bring many of the prepared officers in to United Nations (UN) and African Union (AU) missions.   Read more: Norway police equips MPS
