MARRIED couples in the Police have called on the Government to revise the transfer policy.

The Police officers and Anti-Stock Theft Unit raised the issue during the nation-wide Police review consultation workshop held recently at Land Mark Hotel in Soroti.

Florence Adongo, the child and protection unit boss in Soroti, said in the past, Police couples used to work in the same place.

She noted that transfers of Police couples to work in different places had broken marriages.

“There have been cases of murder as a result of extra-marital affairs because couples are working in different places,” Adongo observed.

Women serving in the Police also demanded to be promoted together with their husbands, saying their husbands tend to despise them because they are of a lower rank.

However, the assistant Inspector General of Police, also chairman Uganda Police review steering committee, Julius Shariita, urged the officers to take transfers as normal deployment, adding that he would give the report to the relevant bodies for consideration.
