Police managing disciplinary issues: Tamari

Due to the magnitude and the number of personnel in the command in the nation’s capital, the past year has been a demanding year for police in terms of dealing with disciplinary issues.

Superintendent Operations-Administration, Chris Tamari, said police is managing issues involving police brutality.

“The only deterrent means is to deal with them head on.”

He said the command will come down hard on these officers.

According to the NDC metropolitan superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, seven officers were summoned to his office over claims of brutality earlier this week.

“Seven of them will be charged,” he said.

He adds that over the past weekend, he suspended two police officers as well.

He said this is something the command has been and is still dealing with.

N’Dranou assures the public that the current police management will do everything it can to remove those who are not supposed to be in uniform.
