The program is called “Traffic Safety Joint Training” and has been presented to the local police officers based in Marjayoun and Ebel Saki, and members of the Lebanese gendarmerie.

The course lasted for five days in which the Spanish agents have shown how local forces how to conduct road blocks, traffic checks and alcohol or drug screening, including, for example, how to detect if a driver displays symptoms of having ingested alcohol or any kind of narcotic substance.

Other practical exercises included incident response and the techniques applied in Spain when collecting evidence and fingerprints, visual inspection and preserving and recording the scene.
