​No cash handouts to police at roadblocks

Residents are not allowed to give money to police at roadblocks just to bail their way out.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Ben Turi, says all police officers are paid for their jobs and it is against their conduct to accept, let alone ask for, any money from the public at roadblocks.

He also states, police roadblocks are not a new thing to residents in the nation’s capital, therefore people shouldn’t act surprised when approaching one.

“All vehicles will be searched for criminals or weapons or if the driver and his passengers are under the influence of alcohol,” Turi states.

He says roadblocks are set up to deter rascals and criminals from doing anything ridiculous.

He has already spoken to his officers about following due process and the general public should also follow by not allowing for side deals to occur.
