It has been a great pleasure keeping you updated on the RTC and sending along useful information for your careers. We appreciate everyone who took time to read and give us feedback on all our efforts. We head into the New Year feeling very positive about the future of law enforcement in Africa, and it is because of your diligence, hard work, and passion for your jobs! Bravo! 2019 promises to be very exciting for the RTC alumni with a lot of interesting activities and courses heading your way.
2019 courses have been tailor-made to respond to the critical needs of law enforcement officers in Africa. These courses have been carefully designed to equip participants with the needed skills in fighting growing criminal trends on the continent. Course offerings will include a wide range of Investigative courses, Leadership programs, a Countering Violent Extremism course series (CVE) as well as Anti – Corruption trainings.
Alumni Outreach Tools
The RTC engages its alumni through its social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp). In 2018, we noticed a sharp rise in alumni engagement via our WhatsApp platforms where we engaged alumni in several virtual meetings following the end of the RTC trainings. This year, the RTC also transitioned to a new website - follow this link (https://westafrica.ilea.state.gov/) to get updated with the latest news. We engaged alumni through emails via firstname.lastname@example.org, in-person interviews, phone calls, and the monthly newsletters which provided updates on the RTC and featured alumni who shared success stories and other law enforcement related articles.
In 2019, we hope to enrich our newsletter content with other interesting segments to include live news broadcast, instructional videos, webinars, and useful links to enhance our alumni research library. You can reply to this blog post via email@example.com by sharing interesting activities you would like to see featured on the website.
IGN Alumni Survey Alert
As part of our efforts to enhance our alumni outreach program, the RTC encourages all participants to utilize the ILEA Global Network (IGN) as a tool for promoting collaboration. The IGN is an easy to use online platform, which connects all RTC alumni. The IGN has launched a short survey about your professional experience following the end of your RTC training. Please follow the link in your inbox to complete the 6 month survey at your earliest convenience.

To achieve our goal of establishing better networking opportunities and regional partnerships, the RTC plans to host its first Regional Alumni Event in Nigeria. The alumni event will create the needed platform for knowledge sharing and also improve interagency collaboration amongst participating law enforcement entities.
