State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi visits ‘model’ Yamethin Police School
SOME difficulties may arise in developing police trainees into professionals unless requirements and expectations are met, said State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on her tour of No (1) Police Training School (Yamethin) in Mandalay Region yesterday.
The State Counsellor vowed to fulfill the basic needs of the community following the formation of a committee at No (1) Police Training School (Yamethin). The training school reportedly aims to become a leading centre for progressive and in-depth police training.
In meeting with trainees, the State Counsellor asked about questions concerning the difficulties and challenges faced by the group during the training programme and held talks on the skills and abilities that a female member of the police force should be possessed with.
She called on the trainees and trainers to offer suggestions in regard to developing the Myanmar Police Force.
Expressing her willingness to make police training more effective, the State Counsellor vowed to upgrade the school into a top police academy which will meet the standards of an international police training institution.
“It is impossible to achieve success overnight. The school will be upgraded within the country’s financial capacity.” She said.
During her tour of the police training school, the State Counsellor was accompanied by Union Minister for Home Affairs Lt-Gen Kyaw Swe, Chief of Myanmar Police Force Police Maj-Gen Zaw Win and officials.
The State Counsellor also visited hostels and staff quarters where she greeted th families of police members.
