The German Embassy in Uganda on Wednesday donated to Uganda Police Force ten motor cycles, two double cabin pick ups and four cameras.
The items where handed over to the Deputy Inspector General of Police Maj Gen Sabiiti Muzeyi at their head quarters in Naguru.
According to the German Ambassador to Uganda Dr Conze Albrecht their contribution is because of the long good relationship they have had with Uganda.
“Our cooperation is going to continue not only in material support but also in training and exposing the Ugandan Police Force to modern ways of police work” he said.
Deputy IGP, Sabiiti Muzeyi expressed gratitude to the Embassy and called for furtherance of the relationship.
“This is an enormous support to the Uganda Police Force by your Government. It is an illustration of the strong relationship that exists between the two sister countries. It is also a demonstration of the fact that fighting crime, which has now taken a transnational dimension, is a responsibility of every country” he revealed.
Muzeyi added that this kind of support will not only help to fight crime within Ugandan but also cross border crimes under regional continental and international policing arrangement.
“Your continued support in different investigation disciplines such as drug trafficking, terrorism and money laundering is highly appreciated as well,” he added.
This is not the first time the German Government is supporting the Uganda Police in capacity building through training, transport and equipment provision.
The Force has previously benefited from courses in the areas of Crime Scene Management, Forensic Photography, Fingerprints, Bomb Scene Management, Homicide Investigations, Narcotic Drug Investments and training of trainers courses.
