The 16th IMOSC program aims to develop complex investigation management and leadership skills of senior officers.

Superintendent Aumua Col Aumua will be the first member of SPPCS to join this prestigious training and says he is thrilled to be selected to attend.

“I am honoured and excited to be given this opportunity. The training can facilitate and strengthen SPPCS’ ongoing drive to protect our communities from the effects of transnational crime”, said Superintendent Aumua.

Commissioner Auapa’au Logoitino congratulated Superintendent Aumua for becoming the first to represent the Samoa Police, Prisons and Corrections Services in the program and wished him well with his deliberations at the gathering.

In addition to his remarks, Commissioner Auapa’au encouraged the senior commissioned officer to utilise the opportunity.
