The Acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has started putting plans in motion to tackle corruption within the police force. Mr. Arase has said that it is needful in order to restore the image of the police force.
“Any officer caught either through whistle-blowing framework or direct operations of the enforcement units of
the force will be appropriately dealt with in line with established disciplinary procedure.
“This administration intends to address the menace of corruption in the police by developing frameworks and interventions that will address root causes of corruption.
“In this regard, official factors like logistics and welfare challenges that create grounds for corrupt tendencies by
police officers will be vigorously addressed.
“The second approach is to pursue a very robust anti-corruption enforcement strategy that will leave no serving
officers and citizens under any illusion about its integrity, and firm commitment to national ethical rebirth and development.
“Very soon, the nation will witness a massive and sustained deployment of the anti-corruption action units of the force for enforcement functions’’, he said.
