We would like to inform the public that the installation of the Hi-tech CCTV cameras for the KMP area now stands at 68%.  The work has been carried out as part of the police investments in the CCTV provision across the country, on the Directive of H.E. The President.

So far 2547 cameras have been installed out of 3233 (78%), sites installed are 1038 out of 1248 (83%), cameras online are 1565 out of 3233 (48.4%), trenching 1083km out of 1258km (86%), monitoring rooms on line (Divisions) 11 out of 18(61%), fiber cable laying 1000km out of 1258km (79.5%), construction of the National Center (40%).

The purpose of the use of the CCTV is to monitor public places, where they are installed to assist in the prevention and detection of crime.  The completion of phase I, of this innovative project, will mark a significant point in what is a complex and intricate project.  The program works have been huge and we are grateful to the CCTV project team for all their hard work.

We are also actively using the CCTV system for gathering information, supporting patrols within the KMP area, directing investigations, tackling anti-social and criminal behavior, which range from nuisance to assaults and wounding, and other offences such as burglary, robbery and murder.  The recordings show the whole incident from the point the offender began to commit an offence to the end.

MITOOMA - The Chief Political Commissar of the Uganda police force, AIGP Asan Kasingye has urged police officers in Mitooma district to know their responsibilities for an effective service delivery to the public.

Kasingye was speaking to officers at Mitooma district headquarters during the ongoing rectification campaign exercise in greater Bushenyi districts.

“A human resource manager should be able to ensure that each and every officer knows his or her duty, I have left instructions here that the DPC must provide in writing to the officers their schedule of duties so that they know what they are supposed to do. This will help in making sure that we do a periodic evaluation of the officers and will help improve their own capabilities if they know what they are supposed to do” Kasingye said during the function.

“The most important thing is to improve the relationship between the people and the force but also redeem the force’s image, the human rights position, and also to make sure there’s zero tolerance to corruption. We are not going to tolerate any corruption tendencies in the Uganda police as we try to bring the community closer to police.”

AIGP Kasingye also called upon officers to have team work adding that, there is no way they can deliver services without team work.
