HARARE, Feb 11 — Zimbabwe’s Deputy Commissioner-General of Police responsible for human resources, Levi Sibanda, has hailed the participation of women in the country in the security sector, hinting that the Zimbabwe police force was opening up opportunities across the gender divide.

Speaking at the official opening of the 2015 Police Staff College school calender in here Tuesday, Sibanda said: “It is pleasing to note that female officers constitute 27 percent of the participants. This fits in very well with the organization’s commitment to opening up the doors of opportunities across the gender divide.”

He said female police officers were chosen on merit and not favour. “As a matter of fact and record, female officers in the Zimbabwe Republic Police are confidently climbing up the ladder of achievement by absolute deserved and earned merit,” added Sibanda.

He warned the officers not to be nomadic but show commitment to the organization after completion of their studies. “This organization expects nothing short of individual and collective focused commitment, diligence and self driven application,” he said.

“You will appreciate that the organization cannot afford the luxury of sponsoring indecisive nomadic police officers and members who are given to jumping ship for purported greener pastures. As an organization, we consider participants to be in a position to reciprocate the sacrifice the organization has made in availing the funding and complementary resources.”

A total of 178 students will study for diplomas at the Zimbabwe Staff College in police studies, adult education and public relations. The courses cover the four main pillars of police work including administration, crime, human resources and operations.

The Zimbabwe Staff College is an affiliate of the University of Zimbabwe.
