Trainees are drawn from different departments of the police service that include traffic, CGPU, and the High Court.

Buzi also explained that although the training is intended to tackle the issue of gender based violence within the deaf community, it is also aimed at discussing disability and gender concepts so that officers can be familiar with them.
