Twenty police officers from different units have been arrested over allegations of taking bribes.

The Professional Standards Unit (PSU) arrested the suspects from different parts of the country in the ongoing operation to crack down on corrupt officers.

The arrests include officers from marine, traffic and CIID units.

The arrests were conducted from Kakiri, along Hoima road, Kauni, Nansana, Migera, Bombo, Mabira, Kaweepe, Masaka, Busufu, Nsangi and Kigogato.

 

While briefing journalists at the special investigations unit Kireka, Assistant Commissioner of Police James Mushabe Katonyera said the police are trying to clean up its image by removing the corrupt officers and urged the public to help report to police such criminal offences.

 

Mushabe said suspects will appear in court as soon as the investigations are complete.

 

The suspects are alleged to have received between sh 10,000 to 570,000 as inducements.
