CREATING REGINAL PSU TEAMS IN KMP
PSU has created PSU Teams within Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP). We have stationed regional PSU Commanders at every police region for the purposes of accessibility by the public. Each region has a contact person who will bridge a gap between the PSU, police and the public.

As a result of this program, detectives in room 14 and 7 at Katwe division and other officers are undergoing serious vetting and screening due to numerous complaints raised against them in public meeting.
