Police Changes See Over 250 Commanders Transferred

Recent police changes have seen major transfers of a total of 254 commanders. Over the weekend, the new Deputy Inspector General of Police released a letter to communicate some of the transfers.

The letter said the Commissioner of Police, Paul Kato Tumuhimbise has been appointed as the new deputy director of the Criminal Investigation Directorate.

The Assistant Commissioner of Police Esther Akwango also saw a transfer in the recent police changes. She has been moved from Nairobi where she has served as a police attaché, to Ssezibwa region as regional police commander.

More to that, Senior Superintendent of police Rose Nahyua has been appointed as an administrator in the Human Resource Management Directorate. This is at the Police headquarters in Naguru.

The message further indicates that Assistant Commissioner of police Justus Twinomujuni is now deputy director in charge of economic crimes. This department is at the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) at Kibuli. He replaces Francis Olugu at this position.

The new head of trafficking in persons and international crimes against women and children is now Catherine Tusiime.

Why the numerous and swift changes;

Since his appointment as the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj Gen Lokech has spearheaded many changes in the Police Force. He aims at improving the level of performance and professionalism in the law and order enforcement force.

Recently, he sent almost all DPCs to the counter-terrorism police training school in Katakwi district for a 3-month refresher course.

Overstaying in one deployment had made many commanders comfortable and therefore less innovative while carrying out their tasks.

Therefore, the transfers directly aim at changing that through introducing them to a new field of operations.
