Communities advised to work with police
Mansa, March 2, ZANIS—–Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of Operations, Malcolm Mulenga, has called on people of Luapula Province to work with the police and to enhance community policing in curbing crime.
Mr Mulenga says with an active community policing between ordinary people and the police, it will be easy to identify and solve problems faced in communities.
ZANIS reports that the Deputy Inspector General of Police, who is also immediate past Luapula Province Commissioner, said this during his farewell party held at Chinuchi Lodge in Mansa over the weekend.
Mr Mulenga has since appealed to police officers in the province to ensure that peace and order prevail not only in the province but the country as whole, adding that this can only be achieved through sacrifice and working with the community.
Speaking at the same function Luapula Province Deputy Commissioner of Police, Webby Shula, commended the Deputy Inspector General of Police for his commitment towards work.
Mr Shula said while in the province Mr Mulenga took it upon himself to interact with traditional leaders, the media and the community and adopted an open-door policy, a situation he said worked well in maintaining law and order in the province.
He said Luapula Division had scored a lot of successes under his leadership and his promotion is a plus to the province and the country.
Mr Shula said his hope is to see that the Deputy Inspector General of Police helps fight the challenges that the police are faced with.
