WAKISO- The Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP) Major General Sabiiti Muzeyi has on Friday 27 urged police officers to work hard towards their targets.
He made the remarks at the closing ceremony of a three weeks transformation leadership course at the Police Senior Command and Staff College in Bwebaja.
Under the theme ‘Towards a more gender-responsive and effective police force,” the course was aimed at preparing more women officers to take up command leadership positions in the force.
“As a leader, whether male or female, there are lessons you need to learn from the principles of marksmanship, follow through and follow up to conclusion,” said the DIGP.
He further encouraged officers to build their teams and equip them with skills.
“There is no leadership that doesn’t meet obstacles but when you meet an obstacle, behave like water,examine your internal weaknesses and fight them, asses your strength and keep your eyes on your target,” he said.
Maj. Gen Sabiiti tasked the participants to put good use of heat they learnt by practicing, mobilising and not pulling their colleagues down.
The facilitation team led by the Makerere University Business School principal Prof Wasswa Balunywa said the participants were through several topics including socialisation process, sexual abuse and exploitation, challenges women in police face among others.
A total of 30 officers were passed out with 27 women and 3 men.
