AIGP Asan Kasingye ended his tour of Lango, meeting leaders in Oyam district, Friday.
Lira, March 18, 2022: The Assistant Inspector General of Police Asan Kasingye was in Lango for a one week official duty.
While in the different districts and Lira City, Asan met and interacted with the regional security management, district leaders and other stakeholders, including the communities.
On his second last day, Thursday, March 18, he appealed to the police to have a mutual relationship with the public.
The AIGP was in Lira City on an “ideological and rectification engagement”.
He further appealed to the police to endeavour to have a good working relationship with the public through giving them good services that regain back the lost reputation.
He said the force has to work hand in hand with the district and city officials for clean records.
Kasingye further noted that their coming is not to ridicule anyone but rather to rectify the challenges at hand.
Deputy RDC of Lira Chemutai James Small told the team that the major problem they are facing is having few female police officers at most Police Outposts which makes it hard to handle female related issues.
The deputy RCC of Lira City, Paul Eseru appreciated the AIGP for giving Lira three district police commanders which he reveals have reduced the rates of crimes to reduce within the city.
Lira has the highest number of slum dwellers, according to Eseru, adding it calls for collective security support to calm the crime rates down.
The Regional Police Commander of North Kyoga, SSP Anatoli Katungwensi commented that the biggest challenge in the region is the distance of Police Headquarters (Erute), about 5km which makes most people end up only at Lira CPS.
He appeals to the City authorities to allocate some space for them which makes the services get closer to the people.
AIGP Kasingye is the Chief Political Commissar of the national police force. He was conducting his tour of duty in North Kyoga and it started on Monday with Amolatar and Dokolo, then Kwania and Apac on Tuesday.
Otuke, Alebtong on Wednesday then Lira and Kole on Thursday and ended with Oyam district.
Key in his address was teamwork, coordination with other stakeholders, service delivery for the community members, inadequate logistical support, those missing appointment letters, improvement in Exodus Saaco, sensitization, lack of uniforms and medical attention.
