Another police officer will be joining the Division of Fire and Rescue, following the swearing in ceremony held on May 29.

The Ministry of Justice through the Bureau of Public Safety had administered the swearing in ceremony of Jendalie Emiwo.

Prior to Emiwo’s swearing in ceremony, six other new police officers had also been sworn in office and deployed to the patrol department, the fire and rescue team, and at the Koror Jail.

BPS Director Alloysius Alonz, had previously said in an interview with Island Times, that as public officers their job is to serve and protect the public and that a police officer must always maintain the image of a police officer.

“A police officer is a police officer 24 hours. Even if you are off-duty [or whether] you’re in a party, and [in] anything else you do, you still have to maintain that image because it will reflect on the whole Bureau,” Alonz said.

According to Alonz, the BPS currently has 153 sworn in police officers and that they are aiming to reach the number of at least 200 police officers. (Rhealyn C. Pojas with PR)
