NCD Police set to launch festive operations

Police have urged the general public to be responsible and not to do anything regrettable during the festive period.

This comes after NCD Metropolitan Superintendent; Perou N’Dranou announced that the NCD Christmas Operations will be launched at the Five Mile Jack Pidik Park next week Tuesday 19th December.

The operation will be launched by the Divisional Commander for NCD/ Central, Donald Yamasombi.

The Met Sup has requested for all police personnel to be present in their full attire (Uniforms) during the launch.

This includes Special Services Division, the Dog Unit, and all internal manpower of all units including all reservists in NCD.

“Our mission is very simple. Let this festive season be celebrated in its true meaning,” said Perou.

He said a large number of police personnel will be put out on the street to ensure that safety is guaranteed for the general public during the festive season.

Tuesday will only see the formal launch of operations, with actual operations already started two weeks ago in the nation’s capital.

The operations have seen some manpower already being utilized with drunk patrols and night road blocks being conducted in certain areas and hot spots in the city.
