The Zambia Police Service has no immediate plans to lift the suspension of Police Reserve wing it suspended two years ago.

Zambia Police Service Deputy Spokesperson Rae Hamoonga says  the Service currently has no plans to recruit Reserve Police officers in Lusaka.

Mr Hamoonga however said the Police Reserve wing in other provinces in the country are operating normally as only Lusaka was affected by the move.

“I have not yet started the recruit of Police reserves in Lusaka because the suspension only affected Lusaka but elsewhere activities have continued normally,” he said.

ZANIS reports that the Zambia Police Service Deputy Spokesperson said this in an interview today.

He said the suspension of the Police reserve wing in Lusaka has not had an adverse effect on the operations of the Police in the capital city.

“I wouldn’t say the suspension has affected our operations no, we are not affected, the operation are going on well,” he said.

Mr Hamoonga said the Lusaka Province Commissioner will decide at an opportune time to engage the services of the Reserve wing but currently the wing stands suspended.

The Police Reserve wing  was suspended in 2012 due to  involvement in criminal activities.
