    SYNOPSIS: In the Ivory Coast, President Felix Houphouet-Boigny went to the Police College in Abidjan on Friday night for the annual graduation parade. There he saw the leading cadet-officer of the year take the oath on behalf of the 320 trainee police officers. The cadet swore to server both his country and the law, and the other cadets, kneeling and with heads bared, voiced their assent to the oath.

    The 320 new police officers are the tenth intake of cadets to graduate from the police College since it was founded at the time of Ivory Coast independence in 1961. The name given to their training year was "dignity", and they certainly showed dignity as they marched past their preside before taking up their demanding duties as police officers.
