The Police Watch Magazine

police magaIn this issue, we provide a platform for debate on the current public order management environment in Uganda. Under the theme ‘Public Order Management in Uganda Today: Issues and Perspectives’, the Police Watch brings you different voices from the various stakeholders and what they think about the current POM environment and how best the rights and freedoms of assemblies and demonstrations and the need to maintain law and order can best be balanced. As an accountability-seeking forum from the Uganda Police Force, the Police Watch brings you the worst of the Walk to Work demonstrations and questions how nationalistic, patriotic, professional, disciplined, competent and productive was the Police as it carried out its mandate of managing public disorder. In a quest for solutions, this Issue goes beyond the blame game between the populace, opposition and the police. We are hopeful, that this Issue can contribute to the debate and the pursuit for working, practicable mechanisms to ensure security and safety and enjoyment of rights and freedoms for all citizens of Uganda regardless of their political affiliation. And more importantly, we hope this Issue can be well received by all stakeholders as a mechanism of pushing for Uganda Police Force Reform and Accountability. We acknowledge the input by the working group member organizations and the National Coalition on Police Accountability and Reform member organizations.. read more
