The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force has welcomed more than 30 new police officers after completing their 20 weeks training.
Police Commissioner Frank Prendergast confirms this to local journalists in Honiara today.
Commissioner Prendergast says very soon the new officers will be deployed on two years probation around the country.
Meanwhile, the RSIPF also receive its new intake of 70 officers yesterday who will begin their 20 weeks training.
Commissioner Prendergast acknowledges that this development is crucial for the force.
“Just recognising yesterday we welcomed 39 new recruits or new police officers to the RSIPF with our recruit course completing 20 weeks of training so those officers will be deployed around the Solomon Islands and while they’re on probation for the next two years. I really welcome the addition to the Force. Interestingly yesterday we had another 70 recruits watching that ceremony who currently started their program so it goes well for the future of police force.”
