Chairman’s Remarks on the Occasion of launching of the EAPCCO website
Hybrid , October 2021
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear delegates, after several months of hard work and dedication, I am thrilled to officially announce the launch of our website. This launch is a testimony that EAPCCO is active and very dynamic. The history of todays event dates back to the EAPCCO games in 2020 in the united republic of Tanzania where a recommendation was made on having a website. The recommendation was actioned in June 2020 through EAPCCO funding and in September 2021 UNODC came in and graciously supported on upgrading it to cater for official local languages i.e Arabic, English, French and Kiswahili
This launch comes at a time when the world is experiencing massive unprecedented technological advancements.in this regard, EAPCCO member countries have not been left behind and have come up with a one-stop solution in form of a website that is citizen centric, focused on positive law enforcement interactions. The reason for this launch today is to let global community, our partners and stakeholders know we exist, our purpose, what we stand for, our history, our values, our code of ethics, our organizational structure, our activities, achievements and our shared vision towards a safer secure EAPCCO region.
The self-service enhanced website will make information sharing easy and will create a platform where citizens can access easy-to- find links on meetings, agenda, research papers, publications, video recordings, catch up on past meetings, social media interactions, event live streaming and picture gallery of past events. The website will offer a feedback platform for civic engagement to enhance user experience. This will go a long way in creating confidence and show commitment.it will also offer an easy way to connect to the public through updates and announcements. For law enforcement officers, the website will offer virtual training modules that will enhance and build capacity.
I invite you to create links to WWW.EAPCCO.ORG in your websites and share articles, blogs, newsletters, announcements and operation successes in the News section of our website.
We hope you will find the website useful, robust, dynamic and easy to access from any part of the world.
I wish to conclude with a quote from the Microsoft founder, Mr. Bill gate that “The internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow”
I now invite all of you to visit us at WWW.EAPCCO.ORG
With these few remarks, ladies and gentlemen, it is now my singular duty to declare the EAPCCO Website officially launched!
