Opening a two-month leadership course for district Police commanders and Crime Intelligence Department officers on Tuesday, Kayihura said Uganda and Southern Sudan had agreed to have joint training sessions at the school, while Somalia and Burundi had also shown interest.

“Somalia is sending 4,000 personnel to train alongside our forces which will make handling of crime in the region easier,” Kayihura noted.

The head of Southern Sudan police, Jackson Elia, said he had started drawing plans with the deputy director in charge of human resource management, Benson Oyo Nyeko, on how they would train officers at Masindi.

He said Uganda was advanced and progressing in community policing, which they wanted to emulate. Kayihura said the course was the first of its kind in Uganda and was intended to turn the force into an effective institution.

Citing the UPDF, saying it had many officers who attained high ranks after the bush war but lacked cadet training. He added that such officers needed to undergo special training to match their ranks.

The training will include martial arts sessions by a team from North Korea.
