Be passionate - Paledi
Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mr Bruno Paledi has urged station commanders to have a shared vision and perform to the best of their ability.
Speaking at a two-day retreat for station commanders in Ghanzi recently, Mr Paledi said optimal performance required introspection, critical thinking and determination in order to achieve desired results.
He urged the commanders to foster a positive attitude towards their work and aim to be high performers in order to achieve their mandate of policing in the country. Mr Paledi also implored the officers to be passionate about their work and create networks that would help them produce results.
Mr Paledi further urged them to reflect on their functions as individuals and create a safer environment for the community that they served. He said since crime was a challenging phenomenon, station commanders should develop and share information about their job and make good use of genuine empowerment to shape lasting solutions to fundamental problems.
For his part, The Botswana Police Performance Coordinator, Senior Assistant Commissioner Stephen Tsheko urged the officers to engage workable strategies that could add value to their performance. Mr Tsheko further said creating initiatives in the work place could help the workforce deliver to the optimal level.
The officer said the Botswana Police Service has gone through challenging terrain of transformation, adding that it was not an easy undertaking since it required critical thinking and determination. Mr Tsheko further said it was against this background that many regard the police service as a pace setter in the public service transformational journey.
The meeting, which was attended by station commanders from across the country, was themed Understanding Management and Behavioural Challenges for Optimal Performance”. ENDS
