Thirty-one senior prison officers have graduated from the Prisons Academy and Training School in Luzira, marking the completion of their six-month intermediate command and staff course.

The Prisons Academy and Training School has been very instrumental in building the capacity of prison officers, thereby enhancing the overall management of Uganda’s prisons.

The graduates, consisting of 25 males and 6 females, have undergone intensive training in prison management, leadership, and personal development.

Speaking at the event, Ms. Brenda Sana, Commissioner of Prisons (Commandant-PATS) warmly welcomed the guests to the pass-out ceremony of the second intake of the Prison Intermediate Command and Staff Course, intake 002/2023 and announced that thirty-one dedicated officers had graduated, comprising twenty-five men and six women, who had completed an intensive six-month training program.

According to her, the course had covered a wide range of topics, including prison management, leadership, personal development, service writing, security, intelligence, human rights, administrative law, command operations, and conflict resolution.

She emphasized that with this diverse training, the officers are well-equipped to excel in their roles and make a positive impact in the prison service.

She praised the graduates for their discipline and focus. She expressed confidence in their potential as leaders and thanked the Directing Staff, training school staff, and partners for their support.

“I congratulate the graduates on completing their training and urge them to apply their knowledge wisely. The graduates are ready to excel as officers and strategic leaders, and PATS is committed to conducting more training programs under the guidance of the Commissioner General of Prisons,” Sana said.

Over time, Uganda Prisons has transformed from a punitive to a productive correctional philosophy in prison management. Through this transformation, the Service has not only strived to fulfill its constitutional mandate of safe custody and rehabilitation of offenders but also excelled in production. UPS contributes to the national socio-economic transformation, aligning with evolving global trends in prisons management and corrections.

Given this background, human capital development is crucial for achieving the UPS mandate and mission.

To accomplish this, the Service will continuously enhance the capabilities of its human resources at all operational levels. The course aims to equip middle-level managers with the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for effective and efficient operational implementation.

The course features tailored content in problem-solving, institutional leadership, critical and analytical competencies, and effective management in diverse and adverse environments.
