Military, police cooperation
France provides support for the training programmes of a number of military organisations: the staff college, an NCO school and an infantry school. France also helped train a battalion that now constitutes the standby force of the Economic Community of Central African States, ECCAS.
A forensic science laboratory, financed by France, has been in operation since 2009, and was called upon on numerous occasions involving sensitive cases. France also provided training in 2011 for two police battalions in methods of maintaining order using non-lethal equipment, in preparation for the Francophone summit of October 2012.
