MY EXPERIENCE IN KOREA DURING THE COURSE ON CRIME PREVENTION FOR AFRICAN COUNTRIES [2012]

When I was told to report to police headquarters for instructions for Course on Crime Prevention for African Countries to be held in Korea, I almost froze, especially when I imagined the long flight to the Far East. But fast forward my 25 days in South Korea, and I was wrong, can be summed up in these few words.  ‘Very very fruitful’. But who knows Korea?


Notwithstanding the best ever travel arrangements way from relaying the relevant information to the participants, to obtaining visas, to travel, arrival at the Incheon Airport and subsequent reception by the KOICA team at the KOICA Headquarters, I must acknowledge that that was well coordinated.


I was one of the three Kenyan Police Officers selected to attend the Crime Prevention Course for African countries, among them Egypt, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Uganda and Tanzania.


The effort by Korea Police lecturers everywhere we visited to learn from us and to impart what they had was evident. I was so impressed by the background of each instructor, most of who were Professors in their field of expertise. They balanced class work and field tours and study so well that we didn’t realize come the graduation. There is no vacuum in their policing as all citizens from lower school pupils , university students and to retired citizens  - popularly known as “Silver Police” because their grey hair; have a role to play in crime prevention. This has completely brought crime under control.


Wherever our itinerary led us to, reception was super and here the generosity of the Korean people is acknowledged.  Contrary to our fears that we could be subjected to alien food, each menu was well marked and someone was at hand to guide. None of us was starved and guess what all of us added weight, no wonder my instructor wrote me an email the other day to advice me to lose some weight which I gained while there.


To say the most, the Korea experience of twenty five days can be summed up in a book not 200 words.


As many Kenyans find opportunity to learn in their relevant fields, please go there empty and you will come back full, only please don’t put on the shelf what you learn. Pass on.
