Vanuatu Police Force

After Independence in 1980 the Police Training School (PTS) was established to train new police officers while the other arm of the Vanuatu Police Force (VPF) was send and trained by the Papua New Guinea Military Force (PNGMF) which is now called Vanuatu Mobile Force. When the VMF returned from PNG we combined the two trainings and it was called Police Training Wing.

In the early 1990s the PTS received its first AFP advisor Mr. Terry Butler who initiated the promotion of PTS to the Vanuatu Police College (VPC). The first basic train the trainers’ course was conducted followed by the advanced train the trainers’ course which was conducted by the AFP trainer Jane Crail. This was a combined training with the government training centre staff.

In 2006 when the commissioner decided to register our training institution with the Vanuatu National Training Centre (VNTC) the name was then changed to Vanuatu Police Training College (VPTC) until then.
