Kasingye in community engagements on security   

AIGP. Asan Kasingye has called upon all police commanders in Kampala Metropolitan Area to enhance community engagement in order to get acquainted with the security concerns of residents.

While speaking at a meeting organised by International Organization for Migration in Kisenyi, the Uganda Police Force Chief Political Commissar Asan Kasingye advised the Commander KMP CP. Kafeero Moses to ensure all area OC’s DPC’s and RPC’s heed to this call.

“RPC’s, DPC and OC’s should reach out to communities especially in slum areas as a measure of preventing crime and finding out the pressing security needs of the masses especially the youth,the vulnerable “,he said.

Kasingye said the partnership with International Organization for Migration will help involve the communities in preventive measures against crime,help police to design counter measures and be abreast with early warning mechanisms and build conflict resolution mechanisms that will help prevent violence in slum communities.

He stressed that knowing people’s concerns eliminates operational errors like arresting of innocent citizens which demeans and tarnishes police image.
