FEMALE Cadet Officer Elisha Walaget from Yangoru, East Sepik was the overall dux of the cadet intake of 2017.
Training commandant of the Police Training College Chief Superintendent Peter Philip said the commissioning parade signified the first time six women cadets on parade who were commissioned to inspector rank, one was from the Autonomous Region of Bougainville.
Philip said the cadetship scheme programme was on hold for six years and accepted intakes in 2017 when the three year cadet programme was revised to two years trainings for cadet officers.
He said the cadet officers were the first to graduate from the two year cadet scheme programme.
He said the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) also for the first time has commissioned a large number of cadets to inspector rank.
Twenty-seven cadet officers were from the cadet officer recruitment and the other five cadets were from the Joint Force College Igam, bringing the total to thirty-two.
The cadets appeared in their new commissioning outfit as a new initiative to be commissioned and sent out as new generation leaders in the RPNGC.
