Kayihura implored the police commanders to use the knowledge acquired as they return to their duty stations and lift the police flag high.

“You must bring it down by the end of this year. You must deliver on time and we shall evaluate you. You are in the spotlight and I demand that you be men of integrity to make us proud.”

“Training is the bread and butter of a force, It is the efficiency of any force that equips you with tools in an ever changing environment,” Gen. Jeje said.
