KHARTOUM, Sudan – Strengthening the forensics skills of police in Sudan was the focus of an INTERPOL capabilities building programme in Khartoum.

Attended by 18 police officers from the Sudanese Police Forensic department, the four-day (13 – 16 March) course included training in a range of INTERPOL’s capabilities including fingerprint analysis, processing DNA profiles, facial recognition and general awareness of Disaster Victim Identification procedures.
