RAISING LAW ABIDING CITIZENS IS A RESPONSIBILITY OF THE COMMUNITY
The role played by schools in shaping the country’s youth is vital as children of this cadre are part of the population vulnerable of falling to deviant behaviour.
The deviant behaviour can be attributed to peer pressure which they are constantly subjected to in the early stage of their development therefore it is crucial that they are protected at all cost. The National Commissioner of Police – Isaac Mmemo Magagula speaking during Ka-Schiele High School speech and prize giving day held last Thursday noted that school going children usually find themselves engaged in criminal activities because of peer pressure and as a Police Service it is necessary to establish partnerships with schools through the creation of viable programmes.
REPS TOPS GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS
The Royal Eswatini Police Service (REPS) celebrated 50 years of peace, stability and development in connecting traders by scooping first prize during this year’s Trade Fair in the Government Departments category.
As the country is celebrating fifty years of independence, the Police Service incorporated the 50/50 setup in the exhibition of its various departments outwitting His Majesty’s Correctional Services and the Royal Eswatini Technological Park who obtained second and third positions respectively.
COLLABORATING WITH ALL SECTORS OF SOCIETY IS VITAL FOR SUCCESSFUL POLICING
Forming partnerships and collaborating with all segments of society is imperative for the Police Service in successfully carrying out its policing mandate.
This was revealed by Senior Deputy National Commissioner – Emmanuel Sula Dlamini during the Speech and Price Giving Ceremony held at Ekudvwaleni High School on Tuesday where he was representing the National Commissioner of Police. Dlamini stated that such events are valuable to the Police since they provide an opportunity to forge partnerships with Schools, teachers and parents.
