Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) police have trained 22 new police officers to beef up the team managing aviation security at the airport.
KIA Police spokesperson Sapulain Chitonde said the training ran from December 8 to 24 2016.
He said the officers have learnt what aviation was all about and how to conduct a good search in a professional manner.
“The officers appreciate the skills they have acquired in addition to what they learned at their various police training schools,” said Chitonde.
Speaking during the closing ceremony of the training, Deputy Commissioner of Police Ellen Liganga urged the officers to be watchful when discharging their duties saying airports were critical and sensitive points in security matters.
Liganga advised the officers to always consult experienced officers whenever they encounter a situation they could not handle on their own. n
