East African Police chiefs are meeting in Kampala on Tuesday to discuss among other issues, security in the region.

Police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi made the revelation while addressing the media during the weekly press briefing at the Police headquarters in Naguru on Monday.

Kaweesi noted that the chiefs under their framework body, Eastern Africa Police Chiefs Corporation have been invited to meet the head of the Carabinieri Police in Italy to see how they can give collective support in areas of technical capabilities in the region.

Kaweesi revealed that the police chiefs and the Carabinieri commander general Tullio Del Sette arrived in the country on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s meeting at Serena Hotel.

"The police chiefs are here to meet the commander of police in Italy in an effort to see how Carabinieri police can give collective support in areas of technical capabilities of the police in the region. This is because we work under the frame work of the Eastern Africa Police Chiefs Corporation. One of the major issues to discuss during the meeting is security in the region," he said.

"What affects Uganda, affects Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi, South Sudan and beyond. Any support geared towards addressing regional security is a great move and we can craft it together, that is why the police chiefs are meeting in Kampala" he added.
