December 15, 2010
Dushanbe, Tajikistan: Ambassador Ken Gross congratulated 15 members of Tajikistan's Ministry of Interior and State Committee on National Security on completing the two week long Tactical Management of Special Events course. Ambassador Gross remarked in his speech that the United States values it excellent relationship with the Government of Tajikistan and looks forward to continued cooperation and shared success.
Tajik law enforcement officers learned how to create and implement a special event tactical plan that guarantees the successful outcome of a major event, the safety of dignitaries and others attending the event, and the freedom of speech and rights of non-violent persons, while reducing the risk of acts by hostile persons, groups or terrorists.
Ambassador Gross commended officers on the success of the recent Shanghai Cooperation Organization Conference, stating that its success demonstrated the professionalism of Tajikistan's law enforcement organizations.
The Tactical Management of Special Events course is the sixth Antiterrorism Assistance (ATA) course of 2010 sponsored by the U.S. Embassy's Regional Security Office. Since 2002, over 400 Government of Tajikistan officials have participated in ATA-sponsored training activities at an estimated cost of over $6 million. Training programs take place in the United States and in Tajikistan.
This investigation course is one of the many assistance projects the U.S. Embassy implements in Tajikistan on behalf of the American people. Since 1993, the American people have provided more than $900 million in assistance programs that support the economic growth, democratic institutions, health care, education and security systems of Tajikistan.
