The EP are tasked with securing and protecting the GoIís electric infrastructure to prevent sabotage and theft. They are responsible for protecting 675 sites and 17,000 km of transmission lines. As of 2010 the EP had approximately 18,000 personnel, organized into seven directorates. The 2010 reorganization effort, moving them from the organizational structure of the MoE to the MoI, was seen as positive in enhancing electric infrastructure security. ITAM will advise and assist the MoI as they integrate the EP. Training and equipment status assessments began in March 2010.
