A contingent of 13 Individual Police Officers (IPOS) were yesterday flagged off for a peace keeping mission in Somalia under AMISOM.
Uganda Police Force, Director of Peace Support Operations, AIGP Grace Turyagumanawe urged the officers to be discipline as they go to serve in Somalia.
“Keep the same good standards of discipline as you go to serve in peace operations. Follow the United Nations and African Union codes of conduct,” Turyagumanawe said during the briefing function at Police Headquarters in Naguru yesterday.
He called upon the officers to act with the highest level of professionalism, integrity, respect for culture and diversity and to observe human rights and international humanitarian laws.
The officers are expected to spend at least one year on their tour of duty in Somalia.
We wish them the best of luck in their endeavors.
