IISS Trains Pentecost University Journalism Students.

The Institute for Intelligence and Strategic Security (IISS) has trained 20 Students of the Department of Communication Studies of the Pentecost University on principles of investigation and intelligence gathering.

The training forms part of the institute’s corporate social responsibility toward building the capacity of relevant stakeholders in intelligence gathering, investigations and analysis to advance the course of safeguarding national security.

The head of the Department of Communication Studies, Mrs Miriam Annan noted that the training could not have come at a better time than this era of emerging threats of terrorism and violent extremists, whereby every individual must be concerned about the issue of safety and security. She further charged the journalism students to be more serious, especially with the acquisition of investigative journalism skills to contribute to the maintenance of peace, security and stability.

The Acting Director of the institute who is also a lecturer at the University, Nana Dr Sadiq Adu-Twum said it is imperative to provide a better understanding of crime and criminal analytical skills to would-be journalists to be able to help weed the various rots in society including the much talked about phenomena of coorruption.

The training was facilitated by Assistant Superintendent of Police Mr Godwyll Addison, a senior law enforcement officer, and also a senior instructor of the IISS Department of Training and Development.
