Italy willing to train Vietnam’s traffic police

Italy is willing to support Vietnam in training and improving professional skills for Vietnam’s traffic police force, an Italian official has said.

Vice Director of the National Traffic Police Bureau of Italy Santo Puccia made the statement during his meeting with a Vietnamese delegation from the Ministry of Public Security’s General Police Department of Administrative and Social Order Management led by General Director Lieutenant General To Thuong in Rome on February 2. 

Puccia said his country can help train Vietnamese traffic police in managing, patrolling in road routes as well as in coordinating with other agencies in solving traffic-related incidents.

The Italian police are willing to help their Vietnamese counterpart in applying advanced technologies in monitoring key road routes as well as in establishing round-the-clock emergency intervention and information processing centres, he stressed. They have wide experience in organising communication campaigns on traffic safety in the community, Puccia added.

For his part, Lieut. Gen. To Thuong highlighted that Italy’s experience is very useful for Vietnam. He expressed his hope that the Italian side will provide specific support for Vietnam in the near future. 

With a force of only 12,000 staff, Italia’s traffic police force performs about 1,500 patrols along nearly 7,000 km of expressways and over 20,000 km of national roads a day. It also work with other forces to ensure safety and security along inter-provincial roads.
