I have assisted severally in joint operations meetings with other security stakeholders in my capacities as operations officer, district police officer, Local security Assistant for WFP as well as FPU Coordination Officer with UNAMID to support the emergency preparedness and disaster response management activities. This will consequentially facilitate access for safe programmed delivery and to mitigate potential risks against staff members.

I have sound knowledge in the implementation of Security Risk Management mechanism like the prevention of likelihood and mitigation of the impact of threats to personnel and facilities by applying the minimum operational security standards (MOSS), residential security measures, and relocation and evacuation procedures.

I also performed similar duties while on a UN peacekeeping mission (UNAMID) from November 2013 to November 2015 in my capacities as Patrol Officer, trainer and Formed Police Unit Coordination Officer for Central Darfur. During my tour of Duty with UNAMID, I had as duty to ensure the protection of UNAMID personnel and facilities; the protection of civilians and IDPs of Central Darfur and to facilitate humanitarian assistance by UN agencies for example, I frequently reported about the humanitarian needs of the IDPs which motivated the competent UN Agencies and INGOs to step in with food and humanitarian supplies. I also ensured the protection of humanitarian supplies as well as personnel of UN Agencies and INGOs charged with its distribution to the IDPs. In some cases, my team and I had to intervene to maintain order during the distribution process.

My experience as a trainer coupled with my very excellent interpersonal and communication skills in English and French with mastery in Computer Software Operations will buttress my skills to deliver security training to staff and review security training needs.
