Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong beat the drum to open the 2014-2015 academic year at Ha Noi's People's Security Academy (PSA) yesterday.
In his speech, the Party leader praised the academy's outstanding achievements over the past 68 years, saying that it had trained tens of thousands of officers, with many of them now holding important positions in the Party, State and public security sector.
The academy needed to continue to improve the quality of education, training and scientific research while creating a healthy educational environment, he added.
General Secretary Trong reminded the academy to pay special attention to educating its students on political thought and morals, turning them into first-rate officers upon graduation.
He expressed his belief that PSA would achieve even greater successes in the time to come, creating a modern public security force that acted as the right hand of the Party, State and people to safeguard national security and maintain social order and safety.
