The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Felix Namuhoranye attended the medal awarding ceremony for members of Botswana Police Service (BPS) on Friday, August 4, in Gaborone.
The awards ceremony was officiated by President Eric Mokgweetsi Masisi.
The medal awarding to the deserving officers is a common practice for security forces worldwide.
The officers in Botswana were decorated with the Police Long Service and Good Conduct Medal; Police Distinguished Service Order Medal; Police Medal for Meritorious Service, and the Police Jubilee Service Medal.
On Saturday, August 5, Namuhoranye was also invited to attend Botswana Police Day to celebrate its 139 anniversary.
Rwanda National Police (RNP) and Botswana Police Service enjoy good relations, which were formalized with a cooperation agreement signed in January.
The cooperation pact binds the two friendly Police institutions to work together in fighting transnational organized crimes including terrorism related activities, human trafficking, hi-tech and cybercrime as well as exchange of information related to criminal elements.
Other areas of partnership include capacity development through training, and sharing of expertise.
In May, the 11th intake of the Police Senior Command and Staff Course (PSCSC), conducted its week-long external study tour in Botswana as part of the one year academic programme at the National Police College (NPC) in Musanze District.
