OA total of 220 police trainees have been discontinued from the course on allegations of submitting in false academic documents.
The trainees who were recruited to go under the police training course at Kabalye and Masindi were discontinued.
“We would like to inform the public that a total of 220 trainees, who had reported for the Initial Probationer Police training course, at the Police Training School at Kabalye, Masindi, have been discontinued from the course on medical grounds and falsification of their academic documents”. The police spokes person wrote on their Facebook page.
It was further reported that all trainees underwent very thorough individual medical assessments at the training school, where it was established that 38 trainees, had medical conditions that could not meet the inherent requirements of the training and the subsequent operational policing roles in the field. This as a result probed them to be discontinued.
The police added that an additional 182 trainees, were discontinued after though verification of their academic documents. Upon thorough scrutiny, they were found with forged documents, others had less than 4 credits, failures in English other than the credit required, failure in Mathematics other than the pass required, while others were found to be overaged, which automatically ruled them out of the training. All the forged academic documents were confiscated and exhibited at Masindi CPS, where investigations were instituted.
