“Police Service is not a joke. If you have been watching movies and because of that you joined the police, now with current events you realize that it is real…it is not joke. Therefore, you must know that there is a lot of sacrifices but limited appreciation. It is not a smooth terrain and will soon appreciate this observation when you get posted your regions, divisions and stations. You need to bring the knowledge acquired over the period to bare”, he urged.
