Female police trainees salute during a passing out parade in Lusaka July 29, 2010. A total of 1500 officers will graduate in July and August, bringing the total number of police officers to about 14,000 in the country of a population of 12 million. Zambia’s Police Inspector General Francis Kabonde said during the parade that “This means that the ratio now is one police officer to about 850 people. The internationally accepted standard ratio is one police officer to 250 people.” Kabonde has appealed to President Rupiah Banda to allow annual recruitment so that they can reach a strength of at least 27, 000 by 2015.
