The Director Criminal Investigations Department AIGP Grace Akullo has urged officers to exercise the highest level of integrity as they handle case files.
Akullo was speaking at a closing ceremony of the 103 police officers who had been on a two weeks course in records management at the Crime Inspection Department (CID) Headquarters Kibuli on Saturday.
“Handle cases with integrity, stop negotiating cases and digest any forms of corruption like taking money from suspects. There’s no room for corruption in the Uganda Police Force,” she warned.
She noted that the CID will conduct various trainings as a way of building capacity.
Akullo urged the officers to take the knowledge acquired seriously so that they become better records officers, noting that the institution relies on them to capture correct records of crime statistics for future planning in the fight against crime.
“Records management is one of the critical areas in crime management, good record keeping is not good practice but also aids in case monitoring and planning for the institution,” she said.
The officers were taken through topics such as laws relating to records, good practices in record keeping, records and information security, value of records as a planning tool and criminal management system among others.
The course was funded and facilitated by the Justice, Law and Order Sector (JLOS).
