Ghana's police and armed forces will be joined by United States Africa Command and Special Operations Command Africa in a training programme on how to react to threats.

The exercise, called Epic Guardian 2016 is “an 8-day joint readiness exercise” the US Embassy said.

It is designed to increase the effectiveness of U.S. and African government entities and security forces in responding to international threats such as trafficking and terrorism.

The training will involve personnel reacting to a simulated crisis and will cover a broad range of topics, including theater strategic planning, intermediate support, logistics, intelligence, and strategic communications and will take place primarily on Ghanaian military premises, the U.S Embassy announced.

“International threats require international solutions,” said U.S. Ambassador to Ghana Robert P. Jackson. “Epic Guardian is an opportunity to strengthen our bilateral relationship and to demonstrate our long-term commitment to supporting Ghana as it works to counter international threats and ensure stability and security for Ghanaians.”

The Embassy said the training will increase Ghana’s capacity in areas such as communications, logistics, intelligence gathering and analysis, crisis planning and response, and inter-operability—all with the goal of providing for greater security and stability for Ghana and the region.
