From October 2015 to March 2016, IHRDA implemented a project to build the human rights capacity of Gambia law enforcement agencies. We organised eight workshops and trained about 350 officers (from Gambia Police Force, the Immigration Department, the Prisons Service and the Drug Law Enforcement Agency) in different localities in The Gambia. CDs contacting all domestic laws and regional and international human rights instruments relevant to law enforcement were also given to the trainees. We equally developed a human rights manual for Gambia law enforcement corps; we produced 300 copies of the manual and handed to the agencies.
