New recruits

Police trainers to be well-equipped

Police Commissioner Gari Baki says while people blame the training that is given at the Bomana Police College as not doing enough to stop the police brutality and corruption cases, he disagrees.

The training provided is the best training covering basic law, physical fitness, firearms procedures and arrest and police ethics.

The challenge Baki outlines now is to make sure that trainers at the college are well-equipped and are able to meet the challenges of training the new recruits.

Recruits commended but warned

The 272 recruits were praised for their tireless efforts and commitment to pass through their training and embark on the police profession as a career path.

Baki highlighted the 128 years of rich RPNGC history, adding that they had produced many fine police officers who had served with pride and distinction.

He adds that regardless of what they had been up to, after their service most have settled into their own communities but are still actively dealing with law and order issues.
