The Deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Tumusiime Katsigazi, has directed all station commanders to use force whenever they encounter threats.
He said this in response to recent attacks on police stations by unidentified assailants in various parts of the country who kill policemen on duty and steal their guns.
He was speaking to a group of 294 stations commanders whom he passed out after completing a four months course in station command and senior noncommissioned officers course at Police training school in Kabalye, Masindi district last evening.
Authorities said that these fresh commanders will be appointed and immediately deployed to different police stations under different policing regions across the country.
Gen. Katsigazi advised the fresh commanders to beef up security at their stations of command, so as to make it difficult for any enemy who attempts to attack police stations. END.
