Inspector General (IG) of the Malawi Police Service, Merlyne Yolamu, has urged police officers to remain professional as one way of protecting the service integrity.

Speaking Thursday in Zomba at the opening of a Command and Leadership course, Yolamu said Commanding officers are very crucial in effective service delivery.

She said: “As commanding officers you play a supervisory and leadership role and help mentor subordinates. This therefore calls for professionalism and diligence.”

She then described the training as a landmark in providing a proffessional service to creat a safe and secure Malawi.

The police IG further committed that her office will continue embarking on various trainings in different disciplines to help improve delivery of service.

Speaking earlier, Commandant for Malawi Police College, Assistant Commissioner Francis Chisaka, applauded the IG for organising the training saying it will help improve quality service delivery.

One of the participants to the training Inspector Lophet Maliam described the training as an eye opener saying the skills and knowledge will help them serve the institution better.

A total of 60 senior police officers drawn from various stations across the country are attending the training.

The training centres on equipping middle managers with managerial and Leadership skills covering police procedures, forensic science, artificial intelligence based investigation, cyber crime, ethics, criminal and administrative law and public order management among other courses.
