The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force has graduated 35 female police officers after undergoing an 18-week training programme.
The Police Academy said the 35 women police graduates were amongst 70 young Solomon Islanders to receive police training.
The Police Academy had trained a total of 140 police constables this year in efforts to ensure the Force provides adequate national security over the country after the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands withdraws in June 2017.
The Police Academy said the intensive training programme includes amongst other police operations, professionalism, physical tests, police duties, criminal law, and public order management.
The new police constables will be posted out to man provincial police stations.
