Members of Rwanda Youth Volunteers in Community Policing (RYVCP) in Musanze District have called upon residents to be custodians of the law and stand up against any criminal acts.
They made the call recently as they held the campaign in Muhoza Sector, which attracted hundreds of residents.
This was shortly after a healthy sporting event that included joking.
Theodore Murangamirwa, the coordinator for the youth volunteers organization in Musanze, briefed participants on the mission of the youth forum, which he said is to primarily fight crimes through public education.
He called for the involvement of every youth and support of elders to realize their dream of ensuring safer and crime-free communities, and building a focused generation.
Inspector of Police (IP) Viateur Ntiyamira, the District Community Liaison Officer (DCLO) of Musanze, who commended the role of the youth volunteers, and called for strengthened collaboration at all levels and residents, in community policing activities that are mainly geared towards crime prevention.
He asked them to remain vigilant and be an eye for a neighborhood.
“The partnership we have enjoyed over the years through information sharing has led to improved safety and security in Musanze, and criminals arrested. However, it remains everyone’s responsibility to leave no gaps that criminals like drug dealers use,” the DCLO said.
