Must read

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Byakagaba Abbas, has pledged to work towards changing officer mindsets in the provision of safety and security.

Byakagaba said this while assuming office as the IGP at Naguru Police Headquarters.

The former Director for Counter-Terrorism in the Police replaces former IGP Martin Okoth Ochola, who recently retired from the Police Force.

“I know what I am taking over is a very serious responsibility and I recognise it but I am very confident especially looking at my team from the lowest the constable. I am very sure we are going to deliver.” he noted

He said, “This is the time for me to take over. A lot of successes have been mentioned by the outgoing Deputy IGP, and a lot of challenges have been mentioned; therefore, I take cognizance of all those facts. I am energised and strengthened by your presence. I know upwards and down after the constable. I’m going to ensure that we are a very strong team.”

He reassured police officers that they were going to work together and consciously work on our mindset change. We need to change our mindset towards the provision of security, which is a very key ingredient as far as the development of this country is concerned.

“Through our activities, we are going to support the social and economic transformation of this country by contributing to the security, safety, and all of that is enshrined in our Constitution. I am going to have a very serious team. This will mainly be achieved through training and mentoring to ensure that the lowest person knows why he or she is in the Uganda police force and what his or her contributions are,” he said.
