FIVE officers of the Correctional Services Solomon Islands (CSSI) have been promoted to the ranks of sergeant and staff sergeants.
CSII Commissioner Gabriel Manelusi announced the promotions yesterday.
They are Bernard Kungka, Vincent Polycarp Melanoli, Dennis Bule, Joven Feao and Reuben Denimana.
Two were promoted to the rank of sergeant while three to staff sergeants.
Manelusi congratulated the five on their promotions stating they become immediate role models in their jobs.
“You must lead by example and be God fearing,” Manelusi reminded the five.
“You must be the first line of supervision for correctional officers and also know that you are an essential asset in the daily operation of a Correctional Centres and Commercial Enterprise.
“You’ll provide staff with directions and resources to do their jobs and act as a source for offenders seeking additional guidance or redirection.”
