The Director Criminal Investigations Directorate, Grace Akullo, has urged to officers to exhibit the highest level of integrity as they handle case files.
Akullo made the remarks while speaking at the closing ceremony of 103 police officers who have been on a two week course in Records Management at CID headquarters in Kibuli.
“Handle cases with integrity, stop negotiating cases and desist from any form of corruption like taking money from suspects. There’s no room for corruption in the Uganda Police Force,” AIGP Akullo warned.
She noted that the CID will conduct various trainings as one way of building capacity.
She urged the officers to take the knowledge acquired seriously so that they become better records officers.
She said records management is one of the critical areas in crime management.
“Good record keeping is not only a 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, information security, value of records as planning tool and criminal management system among others.
The course was funded and facilitated by the Justice, Law and Order Sector (JLOS).
