Algerian Police to Impart CCTV Installation and Handling Skills to Ugandan Counterparts
Some officers from the Uganda police force are set to receive necessary skills in handling and installation of closed circuit television cameras (CCTV) from Algerian experts.
This was revealed on Tuesday when the Inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura met with the Algerian Director in charge of national security, also the president of AfriPol, Abdel Ghani Hamel at police headquarters in Naguru.
“We will train them to be competent in handling the cameras and also conceptualize the entire CCTV camera system,” Hamel said.
He said they will also train police officers in other various fields that would be agreed upon by police chiefs of both countries.
Gen. Kayihura applauded Algeria for the cordial relationship between the police forces of the two countries which he believes would lead to great achievements.
“The CCTV camera project is very important to us and the assistance to us is very welcome. They will give us technical consultancy and also help us prepare for the camera project,” Kayihura said adding that; “Algerian experts will work hand in hand with their counterparts from Uganda police so as to help implement the program.”
It should be noted Uganda thought of installing CCTV cameras on city streets following the gruesome murder of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi in March this year. President Museveni ordered for the immediate installation of the cameras in major towns and highways, but since then the project is yet to start.
