THE first intake of police recruits this year will see 260, including 52 women, undergoing six months of training at the Bomana Police Training College from today.
During the opening of the training yesterday, Police commissioner Gari Baki urged the recruits to be disciplined and to take their training seriously to change the public perception of police behaviour.
“Discipline is the core value of everything in the organisation,” Baki told the recruits.
“The discipline that has being taught to you in the college is the discipline you get here when you go to perform your role as a police officer outside.
“I encourage you to take the training seriously because a lot has to be done with police behaviour towards the people we serve.”
Baki reminded the recruits not to think like high school students but move on in their new profession.
“You are not high school students anymore. Do not think like one,” he said.
“You are young men and women residing here because you have decided to join and are being part of the constabulary.
“You are now starting your career in this profession.”
Baki urged the recruits to perform to the best of their ability.
