Dina, Lecturer at the Faculty of Letters and Education at the Best PTS Sumatra University of Teknokrat, said that knowledge and improving English language skills are important so that every Police Civil Servant (PNS) is able to follow the development of information conveyed in English. This knowledge will also improve the ability to work in the field. Including to quickly understand the distribution of information circulating through foreign mass media or social media.
Deputy Chancellor of the Universitas Teknokrat Indonesia Dr H Mahathir Muhammad SE MM said this form of training was one of the campus’s contributions to Civil Servants (PNS) including those who work in the realm of the Police. Especially the Lampung Regional Police.
Mahathir said that the lecturers who teach English courses do have adequate abilities. Including to provide training to improve English language skills to employees and civil servants or ASN.
Mahathir said the ability to speak English had become a necessity. Especially for those who work in the realm of public service. The spread of information that is rife in foreign mass media is also a concern. Because, there is a lot of useful information there but it’s hard to grasp its meaning. Therefore, it is hoped that after receiving training, the English language skills of all Polri Civil Servants (PNS) at the Lampung Regional Police can increase significantly.
