LOCATION OF LILAYI POLICE TRAINING COLLEGE

Lilayi Police Training College is located in the Southern part of Lusaka (the Capital City of Zambia) off Kafue Road. It is about fifteen (15) Kilometers from Kafue Roundabout. Driving through Kafue Road from Kafue Roundabout are the first Robots called Kafue/Lumumba Robots. Proceed towards the Southern direction and reach the second Robots at Chawama Turnoff; go further, to the next Roundabout called Kajima. Thereafter, there is Linda turnoff and then follow Lilayi Roundabout. Turn to the left and drive four (4) Kilometers towards the eastern direction straight until you reach the two Track Railway Crossing, where you can see the College itself. Turn to the right, about hundred and fifty (150) meters, turn left facing the East is the main gate to the College.

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF LILAYI POLICE TRAINING COLLEGE

The rich historical background of Lilayi Police Training College dates way back to 1955, when Livingstone Training Deport was closed. At this time, police officers used to train together with the Judiciary and the syllabus was tailored according to the British enacted Laws. The trainees were drawn from Nyasaland, Northern and Southern Rhodesia. This programme was phased out at the beginning of 1965, after Zambia had gained her political independence.

The courses offered were Drill and Law. The black instructors at Lilayi Police Training College were involved in teaching Drill and the white instructors were teaching Law.

Hence forthwith, in line with the Zambia Police Service Mission Statement which was developed in 1994 when the Police was reformed, Lilayi Police Training College has endeavored to equip Security personnel with the knowledge and skills they require to carry out efficiently their work in our mother Zambia, taking into account changes in the Zambian Law and changes in circumstances which may add to or change the responsibility of members of the service.
