INSECURITY: We are reviewing our strategies, IGP says

The IGP said: “We discussed the issue of insecurity within the country and we have expanded a lot of strategies that we put in place that are working.

“They have agreed to support us in every aspect, every area that we need in order to do our job to make the country safe. Policing is dynamic and you cannot give ultimatum to deal with a crime.

“The number of personnel we have can never be enough and the government is doing its best and every year, we are recruiting more policemen. This year we have about 10,000 again to recruit. At least, the number is growing. Very soon we will meet up with the required number that is needed for us to deploy to fight crime very effectively.”
