Captain Kambi (retired) of the Gambia Army Forces is currently holding a training for security officers of the Gambia Revenue Authority (GRA) in basic security techniques to enable them become more responsive in the execution of their duties. 

The training, which is being held in two folds, with each batch targeting 20 participants is designed to expose participants on intelligence, effective communication, interpersonal relation, discipline, security and safety and patrol among other security techniques. 

Retired Captain Kambi has extensive experience in security techniques and did so many training courses during his tenure with the Gambia Army. 

The training is being organised by the department of Human Resources and Administration at the Gambia Revenue Authority. 

The first batch will be wrapping up on Friday with the second batch kick starting on Tuesday.

Speaking in an interview, Retired Captain Kambi thanked the management of GRA through the Commissioner General for the trust and confidence reposed in him.

He hailed the GRA chief security officer for recommending him to the management of GRA to train their security. He said this is a trust bestowed and thus assured GRA management that he would deliver to the best of his ability.

Kambi started the training with emphasis on the vision, mission and core values of GRA, saying that was one of the first topics that was shared with the participants to have an in-depth knowledge in the operations of GRA. 

According to him, he cannot work toward developing the GRA in the absence of knowing the core values, vision and mission statement.

He also touched on a wide range of topics that were treated during those weeks and were conducted to expose the participants to various techniques. 

He also stated that the participants were also taught how to collect intelligence, evaluate and do assessment which also requires observation. He also advised them to improve themselves to better know there are three stages, planning, preparation and executions which, he said is key for security officers to know.
