What was your favourite part of the course?
- Crime scene management & presentation of evidence from crime scene
- Crime scene evidence collection as well as victim and suspect interviews
- I liked all of it, but mainly those two as well
What is the importance of encouraging women in the Police force?
- I am the only women in the station, most victims are female, they may feel embarrassed to talk to the male officers about what happened to them, they are more comfortable talking to me
- When we have to search suspects, and they are female, this should be done by another female, it is more respectful
- Children are often victims of crimes, but they can be too scared to talk with Police, they will often open up to us
How did you top the CIT course for Kampong Cham?
- We listened, we took notes, we tried to learn more every day and we asked lots of questions
- I remembered by taking notes and studying them with course material everyday
the trainer made it easy to understand by using examples
- I want to recommend to other Police to develop their skills and knowledge and be the best Police. Thank you SISHA for the training
- More female Police should do the training, to better gender equality
- Men & women can work well together, they are better at arresting as they are bigger, but we are better at talking to victims and noticing different things at a crime scene
- There are things we can do better than the male police…
