Training on Police Form 3 and Protocols

The Uganda Police Form (PF) 3 is being revised The Uganda Police Form (PF) 3 is being revised

The Justice Law and Order Sector under the leadership of Uganda Police Force and the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, with guidance of the Ministry of Health, in a bid to enhance access to medical services for survivors of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) cases, amended the Police Forms 3 and 24A.

The Police Form 3 is a document that is given to a victim or survivor of a crime after an assessment by the police officer that there is reasonable basis to believe that an offence has been committed against the victim or survivor. It is made under the Police Act of 2006 as amended.

The Sector has also developed Protocols to ease the collection of evidence in such cases to strengthen and support the amendments. The above process emanates from Sector commitments under its Third Strategic Investment Plan (SIP III) 2012/13 - 2016/17

The Sector intends to continue enhancing a sector–wide approach to its response and intervention to sexual and gender–based violence through timely, uniform and consistent management of cases of sexual violence by building the capacity of all relevant stake holders.

The Sector has thus scheduled training of stake holders in the forensic and medical management of cases of sexual assault in Kabarole District – mainly medical workers and Police Officers (CIID).

The training is scheduled to take place at LISIEUX CENTER, FORT PORTAL from 19th – 21st March, 2014 starting from 8:00 am.
