KIGALI - Over 50 judicial police officers, yesterday, started a two-day course to review and enhance their investigative tactics, as a way of equipping them with skills to deal with crimes.
According to the Commissioner General of Police, Emmanuel Gasana, the course aims at enhancing professionalism in crime investigations and strategizing on how the force can efficiently respond to any situation.
“The Police is a strong pillar in the justice sector. In this case, the force will only prove its ability if there is emphasis on professionalism among its entire staff,” Gasana said.
The police investors’ course is expected to come up with new strategies of cracking down on trans-national and cross-border crime, improving homeland security and community policing.
“Servicemen should always understand and apply professional skills and tactics. When you stop learning you stop living,” Gasana added. “Our aim is to ensure that we receive information in one minute and respond in less than 30.”
Speaking to The New Times, the Assistant Inspector of Police, Gerald Rugira, said that the course will equip them with analytical knowledge on dealing with emerging crimes like human trafficking and other cross-border crimes.
“Senior Police officers will be offering lectures on expert requisitions in investigations, evidence administration and scene of crime management, among others,” Rugira said.
