Contemporary policing calls for everyday improvement in what you do and how you do it. It thus takes into account: a. following global policing trends and b. adopt appropriate policing and management standards which make other police forces across the globe look better.
The thrust thereof, is to improve on the management style of your local police force, so as to meet international best practices.
It is against this backdrop that the Inspector General of Police – Mr. William Fayia Sellu has embarked on upgrading the Sierra Leone Police (SLP), with the view to making the SLP become an enviable organisation.
It is this drive that has necessitated the training on digitalisation of personnel’s records.The process started today (04/09/2022) with:
