KAMPALA - The Democratic Party (DP) president, Nobert Mao, has urged the newly appointed police officers to get active right away and close gaps between the Police and public throughout the country.
"Stop working for the Government alone as the citizens of the country are the ones who make up the government but they are not catered for at all times. You are new people in the system who should work for the welfare and security of all citizens," Mao said.
He called for dialogue between the Police and civilians so as to help in the fight against crime, which is on the rise in the country.
Mao made the remarks while addressing journalists at the party's weekly press briefing in Kampala.
He said the party hopes that the new reforms made by the President in Ugandan police are not the last ones. He said this is meant to achieve the expected standards of ethics, integrity and discipline of the Police force in Uganda.
Mao also called upon an amendment of the public order management Act that gives the Police more power to be reduced and accord the citizens the respect they deserve while arresting them at all times.
