The Federal Republic of Germany has today donated one brand new single cabin Nissan pickup, 25 video cameras and 1000 chairs to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Training School at a function held at Police HQ, Naguru.
The assortment was handed over to the Joint Chief Of Staff AIGP, Jack Bakasumba, by the team from the German Embassy in Uganda, headed by his Excellency Mr. Schauer, the Deputy Ambassador of the Federal Republic of German.
In his speech, AIGP Bakasumba, thanked the German government for the strong spirit of cooperation with the Uganda Police Force.
“This is an enormous support to the Uganda Police Force, for which we shall always remember as an institution. It’s an illustration of the strong relationship that exists between the two sister countries.
This support will not only fight crime within Ugandan borders but also across. We pledge to use this equipment professionally and guard against any misuse,” AIGP Bakasumba said.
The German government has previously supported the force in training of crime scene management officers, finger prints, bomb scene management, crime trend analysis, narcotic drug investigations, forensic photography and homicide investigations among others.
