DIGP Yoramu and her delegation are in Rwanda since Monday for a working visit with focus on administrative matters, counterterrorism, and canine management.
The delegation was received in Rubavu by the Western Region Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Edmond Kalisa, who briefed them on the security situation and daily Police operations in the region.
ACP Kalisa outlined smuggling, drug trafficking and illegal cross-border as among the major crimes in the region.
He further pointed out that RNP works in partnership with other security organs and the general public in fighting and preventing crimes.
The delegation visited the Western region headquarters and La Corniche One Stop Border Post with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) where they were shown how RNP monitors and controls traffic flow across borders, and Covid-19 preventive measures.
DIGP Yoramu appreciated the discipline that defines RNP officers and the modern facilities provided to them which she said it contributes to their good performance.
“Ensuring security of the border requires much efforts due to transborder crimes. It is important to work with other security organs and the people to fight them, which is a big step that Rwanda National Police has taken," DIGP Yoramu said.
She added that RNP and Malawi Police Service security issues are the same and they operate similarly to fight crimes.
Cross-border cooperation between the two Police institutions, she said, is important to share experiences and information in fighting crimes.
