Participants are selected across all units of the police including Gender and Child Welfare, CID, Charge Office, PIU, Mobile Traffic, among others. This is to ensure a holistic approach to child responsive policing within all layers of security.

 Speaking to participants on behalf of the Inspector General of Ppolic on Monday, Ansumana Kinteh, Regional Police Commissioner commended UNICEF for supporting such as laudable initiative.
