During the hand over ceremony this morning at Police Headquarters, Naguru, outgoing IGP Kale Kayihura expressed satisfaction with the work done during his tenure. The former IGP who leaves behind a strong legacy of community policing, an initiative that increased community vigilance on crime, expressed willingness to serve the force as a crime preventer.
“Now that am not IGP anymore, l request the new leadership to deploy me as a crime preventer”, he sarcastically stated.
“I am glad that am handing over a Police force that is much better than it was in 2005 when I joined it, there is no doubt that there are achievements, physical and in terms of organisation. Strikes happened in different parts of the country and in 2017, there was a slight increase in the crime rate but no one can rub away the fact that in my tenure, the general crime rate came down”, he stated.
