Keep The Safety On

Keep The Safety On: A film on regional approaches to stockpile security 

States are unable to counter the threat of weapons and ammunition proliferation alone. Recognizing the value of a regional cooperation approach, BICC, RECSA and MSAG have been training a core group of instructors specialized in simple but effective ways of controlling and managing arms in limited resource environments. 

After a three year training period, the first batch of Physical Security and Stockpile Management Senior Instructors are now sharing their expertise on weapons and ammunition management within their own countries as well as training armed forces in conflict and armed violence affected regions across the continent. 
This is their story.
