Bahrain’s Interior Minister Lieutenant-General Sheikh 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 program 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,” Sheikh Rashid said.
