Savannah Regional Police Commander Edward Kyaligonza has issued instructions to all police officers to stay at their duty Stations ahead of the Christmas Holidays.

Kyaligonza issued the instructions on Thursday, to Police officers in the districts of Nakaseke, Nakasongola and Luweero. He said that no leave application will be acceptable for the rest of the year in order to ensure that police stations have enough manpower to avert crime and respond to emergencies.

He also directed the officers to intensify patrols in black spots and along the major highways.

Kyaligonza ordered Police Fire Unit to be on alert to save lives and property in case of fire outbreaks during the season. He, however, said that security begins at home and people shouldn't use the intensified Police vigilance to relax. 

The move was welcomed by residents. Salim Zimula the Kakabala parish Councillor in Butuntumula Sub County is optimistic that patrols will scare away thieves who usually are on rampage during the season. But he warned that if Police commanders don't supervise the junior officers, they may use the season to extort money from the suspects.

Robert Okello, the Parish councillor for Luweero West Ward says that there has been an upsurge of crimes ahead of the Christmas holiday which left a resident dead in this area.

James Musisi another resident of Kiwogozi zone says the instructions will work if the Police officers are facilitated with vehicles and fuel to respond to any emergency in the districts
