Masindi | ACP Akoth Caroline has preached about empowering female Police trainees and urged them to be professional
Akoth is among a team from the Department of Women Affairs who on Monday, Sept. 25, 2023, engaged with female Probation Police Constables (PPCs) and Special Police Constables (SPCs).
Currently, the trainees are undergoing training at the Police Training School in Kabalye, Masindi.
Senior women police officers are facilitating the training.
Led by Assistant Commissioner of Police Akoth Caroline who is the head of Women Affairs, they guided the trainees on empowerment and stressed the importance of conducting themselves professionally in their duties, particularly after graduating.
“As a woman, ensure that you maintain professionalism and present yourself smartly at all times.
“It is through this dedication that you will gain recognition and continue to achieve greater things,” emphasized Akoth.
She also highlighted the significance of self-care, achieving a balance between one’s career and family life.
Trainees were also told to most importantly maintain discipline as a core requirement for long-term success within the force.
They were also briefed on the broader mandate of the Uganda Police Force, with an emphasis on the need for the highest level of cooperation with their male counterparts to effectively serve the Ugandan population.
