Up to seven hundred and seventy three police officers (773) got elevated to a higher rank in 2020. The promotion goes from First Class Constable to Chief Inspector, as the country’s law enforcement body continues to struggles to fulfill the mission it has been entrusted.
The revelation was made by Police spokesperson, Superintendent Lamin Njie who confided to this medium that 65 of them have received the insignia of their new rank during a decoration ceremony that took place on February 11, 2021.
