Superintendent Peter Barkie

Special Constables For Election Operation

He said the appointment on the constables is to assist the police manpower shortage in the province. Supt. Barkie said the constables were identified and trained for the election operation.

He said their term as special constables would expire when the election ends.


PPC Barkie said the other police officers in the province had also gone through special trainings for the election period. Some of the things taught during the training were on how to deal with election-related offences, with physical training exercises progressing well.
