“The year 2018 ushered in a new dispensation of academic excellence, as the college moved up a step further to a degree granting institution in affiliation with the University of Zimbabwe. The programmes are aimed at enhancing the competences of our police officers in forensic investigations, policing cybercrimes and crimes against morality which have become topical among others.

“These degree programmes and other traditional programmes are also intended to enhance the expertise of police officers in the implementation of national policies,” she said.

The degree programmes set to run in the coming year are the Bachelor of Adult Education (Honours) Degree in Police Studies (BAdEd.Hons.PS) and Bachelor of Business Studies (Honours) Degree in Policing Management (BBS. Hons-PM).

Senior Assistant Commissioner, DrGuvamombe said the college has established a state of the art e-library that will ensure that student are up to date with any developments in the academic field.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police recently hosted a Southern African Regional Police Chiefs Co-operation Organisation (SARPCCO) workshop on Curriculum Development and Evaluation of Training in Morris Depot Harare. The aim of the workshop was to develop a uniform curriculum that will help enhance cohesion and effective policing standards for the region.

Representatives for the workshop were drawn from the Republic of South Africa, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mauritius, Zambia and host country Zimbabwe.

In his remarks, Commissioner Training and Development, Commissoner Dr Eric Magejo emphasised the need for police officers to exchange ideas and develop networks for the good of the region.

“There is a growing awareness to develop the curriculum that will cope with the rapid growth of Information and Communication Technologies. The police chiefs have entrusted the future of the SARPCCO programme into your hands and to develop competence among our police officers,” he said.

The senior officer added that identifying training needs and proffering remedies should be a continuous process which must be informed by scientific research. He challenged participants to give their best in scrutinising the SARPCCO curricular and to draft an improved blueprint that would be ratified by the Service Chiefs in their next meeting.

The Outpost also learnt that the review of the curriculum was necessitated by short comings noted during joint operations, where member states often revert to their domestic systems, thus creating conflict on way forward in terms of the standard procedure.

Chief Superintendent Shepherd Madhiko (Staff Officer Training and Development at Police General Headquarters) who was part of the curriculum development experts said it was essential to synchronise standards of identifying training needs and conducting evaluations.

“The whole idea is premised on the assumption and belief that before any training session can be conducted, there should be a process called Training Needs Analysis. We must be able to identify the deficiencies prompting particular training to be conducted. In this regard, training becomes a change factor. After the training has been conducted, we must also measure and establish whether we have met the objectives,” he said.

His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe and Commander-In-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, Cde Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa has commended efforts made by the uniformed forces of providing equal opportunities for women within their services.

President Mnangagwa made the commendation while he was addressing guests at the prize presentation during the 2018 President’s Medal Shoot at Cleveland Ranges in Harare recently.

The consistent increase in the number of female participants at this event, which is previously the domain of males, is commendable. This is a further reflection of the security forces’ positive response to calls for gender equity, sensitivity and representation in all activities in our nation.

“I urge women to take this sport seriously and challenge them to match their male counterparts in competitions as well as performing the requisite roles of defending our hard won independence and territorial integrity,” he said.

Cde Mnangagwa also commended the security forces for their professionalism in the discharge of international assignments during peacekeeping operations.

“I am proud of the professionalism and high standard of discipline displayed by our uniformed forces which has enabled them to acquit themselves well on international assignments. Your performance in the Southern African Development Community, African Union and United Nations Peacekeeping and Observer Missions has always been matching or surpassing set standards.

“I implore you to continue to improve the good standards that you set. What you have achieved so far should never be compromised or negated through moments of lapse or unpatriotic acts,” said President Mnangagwa.

Meanwhile Private Rangarirai Gotosa of the Zimbabwe National Army 4 Brigade Masvingo was crowned the 2018 President’s Medal shoot champion ahead of ninety two participants who took part from the uniformed forces and civilian clubs. For his effort he walked away with $3000.00 cash, gold medal, President’s Medal Shoot medal, food hamper from National foods and blazer for top shootist from Pacific cigarettes.

The best female shotist was won by the Senior Security Aide in the President’s Department Blessing Mukombwe who won the Mbuya Nehanda trophy.

Highflying Zimbabwe Republic Police martial artist Wilfred Mashaya was recently crowned and presented with the 2018 International Master of the Year Award during a ceremony hosted by the city of Podgorico in Montenegro.

 

The award becomes the third high-profile international accolade to be claimed by the pint sized but talented Morris Depot cop. Mashaya’s first major achievement was the 2017 Russia Gold Medal Award, which he scooped, becoming the first African to win the World Kubudo Championship. His second honour was the 2018 Barcelona Hall of Honours award that was presented to him in Spain.

 

While in Montenegro, Mashaya was the only African representative who attended a ten-day training seminar on security, self-defence and Ninjitsu that drew about 120 participants from all over the world. Predrag Lazrevick; the 15th Dan Ninjutsu, highest-level expert was the host and trainer.

 

After the seminar, Mashaya took part in an exhibition and was adjudged the Best Participant at the Third Humanitarian World Festival of Martial Arts overcoming a host of other athletes from Germany, Serbia, Portugal, United States of America, Bosnian Herzegovina, France, hosts Montenegro among others. The festival presented a platform on which a total of 40 participants were afforded an opportunity to showcase martial arts styles and skills in Kubudo, Karate, Ninjitsu and self-defence.

 

He believes the sky is not the limit but the beginning of great things to come.

“At first in 2016, the environment was frightening but now used to the situation. The good thing is that Martial Arts unify people and each time we converge for a tournament, we are now more of brothers and sisters. Some call me by my first name while others Zimbabwe.

My wish is to work even harder and continue winning accolades for the country while promoting the sport was once a preserve for whites mainly from Asia, Europe and America locally and in the entirety of the African continent”, said Mashaya
