Police Hot Lines

BY MENGE STEPHEN
“Our people have vowed to  protect themselves and our policy on crime is Prevention” . These were the words of an Ethiopian Police Commander Mr Getahun Haile when he spoke to the Public Communications during Eastern Africa Police Chiefs Cooperation Organization (EAPCCO) organs  Meeting in Naivasha.
Mr Gtahum  said, all citizens are involved  in policing with well laid down  community policing structures. The Citizens are organized in groups on five with one person leading the group. In this groups at the community level, they meet weekly or whenever need arises to deliberate on  many issues on security, health, education, agriculture among others and report their concerns to a higher  organization relevant to the issue at hand.

The Interior Cabinet Secretary Maj. Gen (Rtd) Joseph  Nkaissery has said that  enhanced cooperation among Eastern Africa Countries was the sure way to combat transnational criminal networks, that pose a security threat not only in the region but also the world at large.

This was contained in a speech read on his behalf by the Deputy Inspector General, Administration Police Service Mr. Samuel Arachi during the opening of The Eastern Africa Police Chiefs Cooperation Organization  (EAPCCO) organs  Meeting in a Naivahsa hotel .

The recent terrorist attacks in Brussels come in the wake of Kenya commemorating the first anniversary of the Garrissa University College attacks, which took place on 2nd April 2015. This is a constant reminder that the threat we face as a country is global in nature and not restricted to our region. We express our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families who lost their loved ones during the two attacks.

The Inspector General of Police Mr. Joseph Boinnet has advised police athletes to uphold the law and prevail upon upcoming athletes to avoid taking or using drugs to enhance their performance.

Mr. Boinnet said doping was not only illegal but a threat to the health of those practicing the vice.
