Police officers have been urged to be disciplined and professional while executing their duties.
The humbled request was made during a three day ideological orientation workshop that was held in the Rwenzori West, East and Albertine regions by a team from the Chief Political Commissariat on Friday.
SSP Kwerit Christopher, the head of Political Education in his opening remarks said, “The main objective of this campaign is to instill a sense of professionalism, ideological awareness and patriotism and also to empower officers such that you are seen to be in control hence effective service delivery to the public.”
“The only way to improve the image of the Force is to have officers behaving professionally and with discipline and you can only do that when your attitude towards work is positive, be self driven, don’t wait to be pushed to do work, have morale that’s how the public will gain trust and confidence in what you do. We want to empower you so that you work with zeal and authority,” Kwerit noted.
He also urged officers not to rush to accumulate riches.
“Officers don’t rush to accumulate unnecessary riches. Take your time. Avoid competitions to have the best houses, cars etc. The future is in your hands. Plan effectively with the little salary you earn,” he added.
Rwenzori West Regional Police Commander Kagurura Herbert Bob in his address urged officers to live a healthy life.
