Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi attended the graduation of new police officers at the police academy in New Cairo on Saturday.

According to the police academy's head Police General Ahmed Ibrahim, the police academy is celebrating the graduation of 1281 police officers in academic year 2017/2018 with a success rate of 92.10 percent.

He also added that 245 foreign students from Arab and African countries were among the graduates.

Ibrahim added that the police academy organized a joint exercise with the military academy in 2018, as well as special training programs in the ministry of the interior for nearly 13,000 police officers of different ranks.

The graduation of the 2018 police academy class was attended by a number of current and former Egyptian officials including former interim President Adly Mansour, Head of the Coptic Orthodox Church Pope Tawadros II and former head of the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF) Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi.

For his part, Minister of Interior Mahmoud Tawfik said that the ministry is keen on enhancing relations between citizens and the police by upholding rights and duties, and that the police will continue to exert tireless efforts to achieve security throughout the country.

"I extend my appreciation and gratitude to the nation's shield and sword, our valiant Armed Forces for their solidarity," Tawfik said, praising police and army personnel for their sacrifices throughout recent years.

The minister affirmed that the combat efficiency of police academy students confirms that they do not compromise with those who threaten Egypt's security.
