More than one thousand police officers have graduated from the Dr John Garang Police Institute in Rajaf West.

They were trained for nine months under the department of Criminal Investigations and immigration.

The Minister of Interior and Wildlife Conservation, Aleu Ayieny Aleu, urged the graduates to discharge their duties responsibly.

“You have two duties. One is the reception of the people who are coming to this country and the second duty is revenue collection, and you know what we are doing now about non-oil revenue. You are coming in at the right time when we are forgetting about oil.” He said, addressing the new officers.

The Deputy Governor of Central Equatoria State, Manase Lomole Waya, said the graduates should respect both local people and foreigners.

“You have to be the friends of the people local and foreigners alike, and indeed in keeping law. We know that as nations grow, crimes become even more sophisticated and the training you have been given will definitely help you in tackling such challenges.” He said.

There were 83 women among 1,076 graduates.
