POLICE officers failing to discharge their duties professionally have been warned.
In a speech at the official opening of the rebranding refresher course for senior officers, Commissioner General of Police Godwin Matanga said professionalism should be the defining character in all their operations and engagements.
He took a swipe at a junior officer who ran away from an accident scene in Victoria Falls where the officer was reported to have hired a prostitute while on duty before he was involved in a road traffic accident.

“I was informed that a police officer assigned to Victoria Falls parked a police vehicle and drank beer in the company of a girlfriend.

“The improvement of service delivery and meeting the expectations of clients is at the core of our rebranding exercise. Hmetro
