In recent years, the PPA has actively participated in training and fostering knowledge on drug prevention and combat for anti-drug crimes police and other forces such as: Coast Guard, Border Guard, Customs, People’s Courts, People’s Procuracy. The results of training and fostering have played an important role in improving the effectiveness of drug prevention and combat. Currently, however, the training and fostering of human resources for drug prevention and combat has not met the practical requirements of drug prevention and combat in the new situation.

In addition, in recent years, the situation of drug-related crimes has been very complicated, had a tendency to increase in terms of number of cases, number of subjects, type of drugs and nature of activities. Therefore, in order to effectively prevent and fight drug crimes, the anti-drug crimes forces need to be well trained.

Under this circumstance, the PPA organized the scientific workshop to evaluate common issues, practical experience in training human resources for drug prevention and combat, especially the experience of training the police forces for drug crime investigation. Based on which, the workshop proposed solutions to improve the effectiveness of training human resources in drug prevention and combat in Vietnam in the new situation.

Accordingly, the PPA and other police training institutions need to renovate the training methods and curriculum for the specialty of anti-drug crimes police to meet the practical requirements of the fight against these crimes. The syllabus and lesson plans should be updated in time with new modus operandi, methods and tactics that have been effectively applied by the police force in reality.
