Every year, Rwanda National Police (RNP) holds ‘Police Week’ which involves week-long activities under the auspice of community policing in the build up to the Police Day anniversary, June 16 – to showcase the importance of partnerships in crime prevention, detection and enhance mechanisms for collaboration in service delivery and accountability.

Activities to mark the 16th anniversary started on June 11 in all the four Provinces and on June 12, in the City of Kigali, to raise awareness against child abuse, among other high impact crimes.

 

The ‘Police Day’ corresponds with the day RNP was created in the year 2000 after merging Gendarmerie Nationale, Communal Police and the Judicial Police Inspectors, the three uncoordinated entities that had a policing mandate at the time.

 

This year’s celebration activities were held under the theme; ‘Stand up for Child Protection’ with the official launch held at one identified Police Station in each Province and the City of Kigali which was also police open day.
