THE Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura has instructed recruitment of over 2400 crime preventers to deal with the frequent murders and other crimes in Nansana,  Wakiso district.

Kayihura spent part of his day on Friday at Nansana inspecting black spots where the murders have been taking place.

He later addressed the police and crime preventers at Nansana municipality offices.

According to Kayihura, every ten homes will be monitored by four crime preventers, who will work closely with the police for quick response if there is any suspicion.

He however, pointed out that the crime preventers must be residents of the area and well-disciplined.

Kayihura further ordered police to patrols using motorcycles at all times.

He blamed police officers for failure to ensure security in the area yet they have the people's support.

"I know you may be hard working but I think you do not know the concept. However, since I have come here and have told you what to do, I want you to implement it immediately," he ordered.

Some residents reported to him that police take long to respond to security threats.

Kayihura also warned police officers against extorting money from the public and asked the Nansana municipality mayor, Regina Bakitte to make sure that there is counter intelligence so that they can arrest extortionists in police.

"You must respect the police uniform because it represents the state and if you are got extorting money from the people, then you will be punished," he warned.
