United Kingdom & Canadian Government Funded South East Asia Counter Terrorism Investigations Management Course

Between 13th – 31st January 2014, the United Kingdom (UK) and Canadian Government’s co - funded and delivered a South East Asia Counter Terrorism Investigations Management Course. 28 senior officers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Brunei, Myanmar and Singapore successfully completed this course.
The course was formally opened by the Canadian Ambassador to Indonesia H.E. Donald Bobiash.


David Gray from the UK’s Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) and Jacques Potvin from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (RCMP INSET) delivered this strategic police training program with future programs being considered.

The overall aim of the course is to support the growth of counter terrorism policing throughout South East Asia, by working together to develop the personal and professional skills of law enforcement officers working in the counter terrorism policing environment, whilst fostering understanding, respect and collaboration between police colleagues from the UK, Canada and South East Asia.

The training draws upon the expertise of British, Canadian & Indonesian law enforcement experts and designed for students to consider and address counter terrorism investigations management issues.  The presentations delivered by participants were developed to a high strategic level reflecting the attendance on this course of CT senior managers. Officers attending were given an opportunity to influence future CT training by providing feedback on the content and delivery throughout the course.

The objectives of this course are to help CT managers and experienced investigators take on the additional responsibilities of CT policing, by equipping them:
•    With the knowledge and awareness to make the ‘critical shift’ from local to national and strategic CT responsibilities and perspectives;
•    To work confidently and creatively as members of their countries CT mechanism;
•    To engage in and discharge operational command responsibilities in accordance with legislation, human rights and strategic policy;
•    To manage complex intelligence led operations;
•    To use threat assessment to determine response;
•    To understand and use dynamic risk assessment in decision making;
•    To identify and exploit evidential gathering opportunities;
•    To communicate effectively and deliver key messages during crisis situations;
•    To understand the role of being a Senior Investigating Officer;
•    To understand how to respond effectively to a critical incident;
•    To be aware of leadership and performance strategies associated with CT operations/investigation;
•    To develop productive relationships and strategic alliances with other law enforcement partners within the CT environment in South East Asia;
•    To understand and incorporate Human Rights into all aspects of policing;
•    To share knowledge and understanding of contemporary terrorism issues including a study of radicalisation issues and de-radicalisation initiatives throughout the region.

The success of this course can in the main be attributed to the professionalism and enthusiasm of the course participant’s, who throughout the 3 weeks showed excellent commitment and willingness to consider and discuss techniques used by other police forces.  The trainers, provided presentations of a very high standard, which were professional, well prepared, appropriately delivered and clearly showed their exceptional knowledge of the subjects. The facilities and learning environment at JCLEC provided a perfect venue for delivering this international course.

UK and Canadian government funding was crucial in providing the necessary resources required to bring the students and the expert trainers together for this training programme. It is difficult at present to estimate the impact this training will have, but from the many initial comments and emails from the senior officers, the training has exposed them to many different techniques and broadened their perspectives and knowledge of modern counter terrorism investigative techniques, different terrorist organisations and contemporary CT issues.
