The Correctional Services of Solomon Islands, CSSI, welcomes 35 new correctional officers with a graduation ceremony yesterday.
Speaking during the graduation ceremony, Under Secretary for the Ministry of Police, National security and Correctional Services Stephen Maesiola says, the new officers are an achievement for the country in terms of public safety.
“The government and the people of Solomon Islands will depend on you for their safety. The CSSI will count on you for the proper delivery of services. The inmates will depend on you for their welfare. Most importantly, your families will depend on you for their livelihood and welfare. The onus now is on you to manage these expectations and balance work life with other commitments.”
Mr Maesiola says the Oath of office taken by the new officers is to save God and the people of Solomon Islands.
The lot is the second recruit to be graduated this year from four-hundred selected during the CSSI 2013 recruitment.
