Do it by the book

THE first batch of police recruits for this year has been reminded they will be in the frontline maintaining law and order during the elections come September 14.

Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan says this is a crucial year for the organisation, and in order for things to go smoothly, the recruits have to know their roles.

Mr Narayan informed the 150 new recruits they now lived in a world which revolved around technology which was constantly changing.

"Therefore, a handful of the people out there know our police roles better than most of us do," Mr Narayan said.

"They know their rights, they know about the new Crimes Decree and about the contents of the new Constitution.

"These are the few things that we should know and if you don't have a fair idea about it, let me tell you that you need to take these issues on board seriously if you are to really know your role as a police officer."

He told the recruits there were no shortcuts to being a police officer.

"Everything has to be by the book and according to law. When you take these issues lightly you'll continuously face problems in your line of work.

"So, I encourage you to absorb as much as you can during the next few months."
