President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has ordered the Inspector General of Police, Martin Okoth Ochola, to sack all non-performing police officers.
Museveni said this on Thursday after the commissioning of the National Command Centre at Naguru police headquarters. He said even with the available technology, crime won’t be minimized if there are still elements of non-committed police personnel.
The IGP was tasked to ensure all officers who are not taking their jobs serious to be wiped out with immediate effect so that the police force can remain with people who are determined to protect all Ugandans.
The National Closed Circuit Television –CCTV security command will be monitoring all other control centres established at various Districts and Divisions headquarters including those in rural areas.
The process of installing CCTV cameras worth more than Shs. 500 billion. It started in 2016 but came into life last year when cameras were erected in various parts of Kampala Metropolitan Policing Area- KMP that covers Kampala City, Wakiso and Mukono districts.
