The General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) announced on Saturday a series of disciplinary sanctions and performance evaluation measures against police officers working at the Royal Institute of Police, following of a meticulous investigation carried out by the General Inspectorate of National Security.
The Director General of National Security had instructed the General Inspectorate to carry out an in-depth investigation into the management of the Royal Institute of Police (IRP) and the schools which fall under it, indicates a security source.
The results of this investigation revealed a certain number of dysfunctions, professional abuses and individual behaviors going against the standards of security governance and the professional ethics of the police, it is explained.
These disciplinary sanctions include the temporary suspension of the Director of the IRP, pending his presentation before the disciplinary council which will examine the overruns of which he is accused, specifies the same source, adding that a similar measure has been taken against two other officials, a brigadier and a police inspector.
A reprimand was issued to a police officer and a warning to three other employees of the same institution, including two commissioners and a police inspector, who will be deployed outside the police training institutions.
These disciplinary sanctions also include the sending of letters of observation to three senior police officers, found guilty of negligence in the performance of their duties, including a divisional commissioner, a senior peace officer and a peacekeeper, in addition the dismissal of a divisional peace commander from his post and his transfer out of the IRP.
The results of the investigation conducted by the General Inspectorate led to a series of performance assessment measures aimed at remedying the shortcomings identified, particularly in terms of the application of good governance standards in the management of human resources and material resources and compliance with the principles of the Code of Ethics for National Security Officials.
These decisions, notes the same source, are part of the DGSN’s commitment to ensure the careful monitoring of the smooth running of its central services responsible for police training, particularly the section relating to strict compliance with the rules of professional integrity and exemplary personal behavior.
