Lab-Volt and POLRI
Lab-Volt is pleased to announce the signing of a USD 13 million project with the National Police of the Republic of Indonesia (POLRI). Over the next 18 months, Lab-Volt will be supplying laboratories and curriculum to train POLRI’s technicians to maintain their electronic, telecommunications, power generation and air conditioning equipment. Through a subcontract with the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC), Lab-Volt also will be providing training in the latest policing techniques and strategies.
With a force of 118,000 officers stationed throughout the island nation, POLRI is one of the largest users of electronic, telecommunications, electric generating and air conditioning gear in Indonesia. When they indicated an interest in receiving updated training in policing techniques and strategies, Lab-Volt called upon the JIBC, one of the leading North American providers of courses and curriculum in these areas. Whenever an overseas customer requests help in updating their curriculum or establishing a new one, Lab-Volt is pleased to arrange the participation of top-rated North American colleges and universities.
Lab-Volt’s POLRI project includes Canadian export financing, and all the teaching materials will be provided in the Bahasa language. Work is expected to be completed by mid-2009.
