The state president Prof Arthur Peter Muthalika has stressed his government’s wish to reduce the police to civilian ratio which is now at 1:1300.

Speaking during the police pass out parade at Kanjedza Police training school in Blantyre Muthalika said that he wants the ratio to be at 1:500.

“I am aware that security has deteriorated in this country and that police officers are facing numerous challenges my government will ensure that your are getting necessary support,” expressed Mutharika.

Mutharika advised the recruits to work hard because the situation is very bad therefore they should expect to work in a tough environment.
