The new resolutions target officers operating in Kampala Metropolitan.
Kampala Metropolitan Police have adopted five resolutions for 2013 aimed at improving officers’ services to the public.
The resolutions were arrived at after a two-day retreat attended by all officers in Kampala. The resolutions include; Intensifying community policing and formation of community police posts; training and retraining police officers; timely crime detection; reducing back-log of criminal cases and improving the welfare of police.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Idi Ibin Ssenkumbi said the police have dealt with criminal cases such as trans-border carjacking, fraud, theft and murder. Mr Ssenkumbi said they aim at improving the welfare of police officers through instituting means of getting extra income as “this will help to reduce the bribes some of them take”.
The 2011 crime report shows that 10 people are killed daily although it noted a 3.8 per cent decline in general crime from the previous year.
