UN Convention on Human Rights

Polye calls for proper training of police officers

Polye said the police force is not properly trained and their training level is very low.

He highlighted that police officers need to understand human rights laws, the UN Convention on Human Rights issues and the constitution of this country.

Furthermore, police officers need to know the job that is expected of them and what it means to be a disciplined force, even in a very stressful situation.

He said police officers need to also understand what it means for them to apply reasonable force.
