Mbu Tasks Officers On Discipline, Good Conduct
SAN FRANCISCO, April 01, (THEWILL) – The Commandant Police Staff College, Jos, Mr Joseph Mbu, an Assistant Inspector General of Police, has charged police officers to be disciplined and of good conduct at all times.
Mbu gave the charge at the graduation ceremony of the Advanced Detection Course (ADC) on Friday.
Participants in the 63rd series of the ADC course were drawn from Deputy Superintendent of Police and Assistant Superintendent of Police cadre from different Police Commands and formations
Noting that discipline remains the bedrock of the police, he charged them to utilise the knowledge gained during the course for the good of the force and general public.
“This ceremony is very remarkable because this is the first course and training the college has conducted in 2016.
“The ADC is design to meet up with the need of continuously developing manpower resources and improve the professional capability of officers.
“Having acquired this knowledge, the expectation of the police high command is that you go back to your respective commands and formations and exhibit better performance.
“We expect better accountability, openness, fairness and firmness in the discharge of your duties; be good ambassadors of this college and role model to your subordinates.
“Our goal is to ensure that all members of the force are made competent, confident and efficient in the art of modern day policing,'' he said.
The commandant warned officers against indulging in alcoholism, unhealthy rivalry and “get rich quick syndrome''.
Mbu noted that those vices were responsible for corruption in the force, adding that they should not throw away the core value of the force – leadership and responsibility.
Earlier, the course officer, SP Paul Keghnenge commended the participants for their good conduct throughout the period of the training.
Keghnenge also advised them to put into practice what they learned during the six-week training for the good of the police and general public.
