German police trained Saudi women as Border Guard inspectors

JEDDAH — The Ministry of Interior trained 11 women to be inspectors under the Border Guards.

Border Guards spokesman Col. Saher Al-Harbi said a workshop in cooperation with the German Federal Police was held for women to train them on personal protection, self-defense, inspection, profiling, documentation check, first aid and familiarizing them with smuggling, forgery and fraud tactics used by criminals.

“Smugglers and criminals often use women accomplices. For that reason, we need women officers and inspectors to help fight crime,” said Al-Harbi.

The training programs are supported by Minister of Interior Prince Abdulaziz Bin Saud Bin Naif and Director General of the Border Guards Awad Al-Blewi, he said.
