The ICRC supports the Ethiopian police with training to reinforce national and international standards pertaining to arrest, detention and the proportionate use of force.
This collaboration with the Ethiopian Police University College has led to the production of a training video that will be used by the police across the country. The ICRC provides customized training tools with the support of expert trainers with police experience.
The training video is in Amharic, the national language of Ethiopia, and has also been translated into other local languages like Oromiffa and Somali.
