The Global Center implemented two frontline training workshops for Indonesian prison staff, in cooperation with the Indonesian Directorate General of Corrections. The course specifically targeted frontline prison staff working at the prison of Pasir Putih – recently designated as a high security facility exclusively housing violent extremist offenders (VEOs). Over a two week period, 44 frontline staff were trained on the management of VEOs. These trainings conclude the first phase of the program, which will be followed by a train-the-trainer process to embed the training program into the Indonesian prison service.
This training workshop is part of the Global Center’s CVE-P Program, which provides training and technical assistance to prison services on preventing and countering violent extremism. The project was established in partnership with the Global Counterterrorism Forum. The program is funded by the governments of Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, Netherlands, Norway, and New Zealand.
