The Inspector General of Police has started a countrywide tour to evaluate the force’s activities and improve service delivery.
The five-day tour started in Rwamagana yesterday, where IGP Emmanuel K. Gasana met officers operating in the seven districts of the Eastern Province.
The IGP challenged the officers to lay strategies to prevent road accidents and fight other crimes like drug abuse, which are relatively still high.
“Be professional officers, offer quality services to those that come to you and solve their problems in time. Also demonstrate good conduct in your duties,” the IGP said.
Gasana also urged officers to desist from vices like corruption and drunkenness, which he said does not depict qualities of a professional officer and the force in general.
The Eastern Region Police Commander (RPC) Chief Supt. Eric Mutsinzi said they are on track in implementing the force’s priorities such as fighting corruption, building a police-public centred force and promoting road safety, among others.
