Salle attains law degree, thanks dept


A POLICE officer was among 139 graduates who received a bachelors degree in law during the University of Papua New Guinea 67th graduation in Port Moresby recently.
This was made possible for the officer-in-charge of traffic in the National Capital District, Senior Inspector Joseph Salle through the support of his department.
“I’m grateful for the support my superiors had given me, with a policy in place to help police officers, a few of us were able to further our studies and broaden our knowledge in law,” Salle said.
Clocking 37 years of service in the police force this year, the traffic boss said he began his studies in 2012 where he completed two years, and obtained a diploma in prosecution law.
Salle went back to continue his service as an officer before retuning in 2020 and 2021 to complete his studies and receive a bachelors degree from the university’s law school.
“As an officer, I must acquire new knowledge so that I can mentor my subordinates in the right path,” he said.
“This was one of my main reasons I had to return to school, because education doesn’t stop.”
Salle acknowledged his superiors for allowing him to work and study at the same time and had also encouraged other officers to consider this to increase their knowledge in law. He was also looking forward to continue his studies at the Legal Training Institute to practice as a legal advisor for the department before his retirement.
