A Six-Week capacity building course for 55 Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) drawn from various police stations in the country is underway at the Police Command and Staff College, Winneba.
The course, dubbed “Junior Command Course 7/2017” is being organised for the 43rd batch of Police Officers who had undergone training at the College since its establishment about five years ago.
Superintendent Samuel Asiedu Okanta, Chief Coordinator of the College in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA), said the course formed part of capacity building programmes the Police Administration had designed to help the officers to execute their leadership duties professionally and with integrity.
He said it was also to sharpen the professional expertise of the participants to help them embrace and employ new law enforcement strategies to effectively and efficiently discharge their duties as middle level-managers.
He said the participants will be taken through disciplines including modern contemporary policing duties, human rights and criminal investigation.
Superintendent Okanta said Management of the College were geared towards inculcating in the officers a high level of integrity and discipline, qualities he said would make them selfless, committed and dedicated to duty.
