Police in the country have been urged to fight crime by learning new techniques as technology is improving day by day.
Malawi Police Inspector General Lexten Kachama made the call at Zomba Police Training during the graduation of 30 police officers and 5 immigration officers from a commanding and leadership course.
Kachama said that with the advancement of technology, criminals are now using technological skills to steal people’s things.
“Police should learn those things so that they can catch criminals with the changing of technology to enable them move and reduce crime rate,” he said.
He added that the six months training the police officers went through should enable them to be exemplary to their subordinates in order to end crime in Malawi.
Speaking on behalf of the graduates, Anastanzia Botoman said the police officers will now be able to handle things according to their level and nature.
According to Botoman, the leadership and command training will remind them all of the activities they are supposed to follow throughout their work.
Command and leadership is a training that trains police officers in criminal law, human resource management, discipline, and finance knowledge.
The training involves all police officers across the country especially those promoted to senior positions.
