Malawi police force members were in Horsham on Thursday. 

Senior Superintendent Rev. Fr. Steven Likuucha and Deputy Commissioner Rev. Charles Masambuka of Malawi went to the Horsham station as part of a study tour with the Peer Support Program.  

Senior Constable Clyde Lourensz, of Edenhope, said the Malawi officers were in Horsham to see how the station and officers work, and see differences between the two police forces. 

Senior Superintendent Rev. Fr. Likuucha said he has already learnt some things while in Horsham. 

He said in Malawi the different sections of the police weren’t connected like they were in Victoria. 

“We don’t have a psychological unit,” he said. 

“Victoria police have a monitoring and assessment centre where they are able to report to one office and then report to the bosses that are there. This is one thing we are learning to make it easier for your officers.”
