Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police Rodney Jose has warned police officers to refrain from corruption and extortion.
The DIG said this on Thursday at the Zomba Police College Officers’ Mess during the graduation of 34 Malawi Police Service (MPS) and Department of Immigration officers who completed an eight-week command and leadership course.
“As managers, you will be expected to assist your station commanders to plan, organise staff, lead and control your teams by executing right decisions through the knowledge acquired from this course,” Jose said.
He warned the officers to refrain from corruption and extortion, urging them to preserve their departments’ credibility.
“Should anyone of you indulge in such malpractices, the law will take its course and you will be held accountable,” he said.
A representative of the graduating officers, assistant commissioner Ulemu Kaluwa, described the course as crucial.
“As middle managers, we will remain the epicentre of all activities that happen at our duty stations to achieve the goals and visions of MPS and Immigration Department,” he said. n
