Manama, September 18, 2012
Bahrain’s Interior Minister Lieutenant-General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa has announced the recruitment of 500 community police officers, including 100 policewomen.
The recruits will start a six-month training programme from October 1 at the Bahrain Royal Police Academy, to graduate in April next year. They have been selected out of 2,200 candidates, on the basis of 100 from each governorate.
"The recruited policemen and the establishment of an ombudsman office at the Ministry represent key reform steps in conformity with recommendations of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry," Shaikh Rashid said.
The minister also paid tribute to four policemen who laid down their lives fighting for the nation. – TradeArabia News Service
