The Chief Political Commissar of the Uganda police force, AIGP Asan Kasingye has urged police officers in Mitooma district to know their responsibilities for an effective service delivery to the public.
Kasingye was speaking to officers at Mitooma district headquarters during the ongoing rectification campaign exercise in greater Bushenyi districts.
“A human resource manager should be able to ensure that each and every officer knows his or her duty, I have left instructions here that the DPC must provide in writing to the officers their schedule of duties so that they know what they are supposed to do. This will help in making sure that we do a periodic evaluation of the officers and will help improve their own capabilities if they know what they are supposed to do” Kasingye said during the function.
“The most important thing is to improve the relationship between the people and the force but also redeem the force’s image, the human rights position, and also to make sure there’s zero tolerance to corruption. We are not going to tolerate any corruption tendencies in the Uganda police as we try to bring the community closer to police.”
AIGP Kasingye also called upon officers to have team work adding that, there is no way they can deliver services without team work.
The rectification campaign that was initiated two years ago will cover all districts throughout the country with an aim of relating with the police officers on the ground, understanding the challenges they go through and also offer prompt advice on what should be done.
The campaign is also intended to link officers to police headquarters to address some of the challenges they go through in performance of their work so as to improve service delivery to the public.
Seven regions have already been covered and they have recorded great improvement in service delivery.
