One hundred and twenty four junior officers of Enforcement Intelligence Bureau (EIB) of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) have for the past two months undergone training in intelligence to equip them with modern skills in their operational duties.
The course content included listening, questioning, observation, report writing and communication skills.
Commissioner of Police Dr Peter Wiredu, Director General of the Service, who spoke at the closing ceremony urged the course participants to bring their acquired knowledge to bear on their duties and exhibit more professionalism in their operations.
He reminded the officers that the future of the Service laid on their shoulders hence the need to apply their knowledge to its benefit.
COP Dr Wiredu explained that there was the need for the course in view of the recent immigration issues as the Ebola scare and border security.
He advised the officers to see themselves as servants of the nation and totally reflect what they had learned in their day-to-day duties, stressing excellence as an attitude rather than a skill.
He added ?we expect a pay back. Let?s see qualitative improvement in the way you perform.?
The GIS Director General expressed appreciation to the instructors and the participants for applying themselves during the course.
The junior officers received certificates for their participation.
Assistant Inspector Simon Ackah was adjudged the overall best participant, and Ms Gifty Ofosu Boatema Akoto, was adjudged the best female participant.
The course is expected to be replicated in the nine other regions.
