Uganda’s Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura has advised Crime Intelligence Officers in the country to always gather credible information to support the Directorate of Operations for better policing of the community.

“The work of Crime Intelligence is to support [Directorate of] Operations or me in decision making but Crime Intelligence Officers are busy looking after aliens instead of support me in decision making or Operations,” he said.

Gen. Kayihura said this while closing a three month Crime Intelligence Analysts Course for Crime Intelligence Officers at Masindi Police Training School, Kabalye last Friday.

He said that crime intelligence should dedicate their work to intelligence gathering.

“Looking for aliens is Immigration work not yours, your principal job is to support the operations of Police,” He said.
He said that with the completion of the course, Crime Intelligence Officers will improve in their work and become more effective.

Gen. Kayihura directed the Director Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Directorate to reconsider re-instating Officers’ plain cloth allowances that was scrapped.
