In December 2008, the Government of Rwanda received two modern arms marking machines from RECSA.
After the training of 20 Army and Police officers on the use and maintenance of these machines, the Police Central Firearms Registry has been able to mark 3,000 police owned firearms to date.
The marking exercise started with Police firearms in Kigali City District Police Units and will be extended to Province and District Police Units countrywide.
The marking exercise will also target firearms held by Prisons guards, national parks game rangers, private security companies and civilian licensed firearms.
