The United States Marines will be coming to Palau this month to provide military training for Palau’s police officers.

Public Safety Director Aloysius Alonz told Island Times in an interview that the four-day training, which is slated on November 26 to 30, will be conducted in partnership with Task Force Koa Moana.

Koa Moana, which is Hawaiian word for ocean warrior, is a multilateral training exercise that focuses on improving security cooperation engagements between the United States and its partner nations.

The training will include firearms training, hand-to-hand combat, defensive tactics, and crime scene and evidence collection, among others.

Aside from that, a training on explosive ordnance disposal will also be conducted.

The firearms training will be held at the shooting range in Ngardmau. (Rhealyn C. Pojas)
