The Technical Support Team Lead, Sierra Leone Correctional Service- Colonel David Ngaujah has presented new policies on recruitment, promotion, ranking structure, among others to the decision making body of the Sierra Leone Correctional Service. This was done in his office situated in former Special Court Complex, Jomo Kenyatta road, New England Ville.
He said recruitment should be handled such that every kind of personnel needed are given the job.
Colonel said he noticed that the SLCS did not have any officer who was a medical doctor or a lawyer.
Advising the SLCS’ management body to consider recruiting such professionals so that they can bring the required expertise, he said he had created room in the proposed SLCS’ hierarchical arrangement for Directorates of Medical Services and of Legal Affairs.
“Promotion for all levels should be preceded by some form of in- service training, examinations, and appraisals. This will ensure fairness and equity for all.”
The Director General SLCS, Mr. Joseph Lamboi said he was pleased with the work, adding “management will need to take a closer look at all the documents for better understanding”.
DG also assured that he will ensure the policies are tabled at the Sierra Leone Correctional Service Council for approval
