Büchenbeuren (ots) - Minister of the Interior Roger Lewentz has at the graduation ceremony of the students of the bachelor's degree program of the University of Police Rhineland-Palatinate and the master's degree course of the German Police University in Münster the high quality of the training as a prerequisite for a good and appreciated by the citizens successful police work praised. "We need you as well-trained and highly motivated young civil servants to meet the increasing demands on the police and to continue to enjoy the high esteem of the people," emphasized Lewentz. According to the minister, the successful graduates would be well trained in a demanding day-to-day job. The job of a police officer is not an ordinary one, nor is it an easy job. But it is also multifaceted like hardly any other profession and the possibility of doing something positive, helping people in need and surviving difficult crisis situations can also be incredibly motivating. A total of 232 students from the 16th bachelor's program at the Rhineland-Palatinate Police College were appointed police commissioners at the graduation ceremony. At the same time, 15 Rhineland-Palatinate graduates of the master's degree in police management from the German University of Police (Münster) were appointed police or crime councilors. The director of the College of Police Friedel Durben said in his speech: “The students have shown a high level of commitment due to their very good track record and their participation in the construction of the memorial for the police officers who lost their lives and we can be proud of that . ” Furthermore, the 16th bachelor's program was also socially committed with the handover of three 500EUR donations to the HdP Circle of Friends, the Stefan Morsch Foundation and the parents' initiative of children with cancer in Koblenz. Minister Lewentz pointed out that the number of apprenticeships at the university has increased continuously in recent years. Since 2018, the number of hires with 580 candidates has been at a record level. In view of the significantly increased demands on the police, not only the training, for example, was expanded to include training in dealing with life-threatening situations. In recent years, considerable investments have also been made in protecting civil servants and in the latest technology in equipping distance electro-pulse devices (Tasers) and business smartphones and tablets. "All of these measures modernize and professionalize our police and make them fit for the future - which benefits people in Rhineland-Palatinate," said Lewentz.
