Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion the meeting

  • As Activists, we must admit that the work of the police in our society today is dangerous. Everyday police officers risk their lives for our sake. They expose themselves to a lot of harm and death. In the past few months, several police officers have been shot dead at banks and on the highways. So the work of the police is such that nobody should expect them to do it with little or no motivation from the their respective governments.

Conclusion continued the meeting

  • Governments should note that commissioning police officers at very little pay is doing a great disservice to nations. It is like giving them a license to go and rob civilians. It is like providing them with a justification for their criminalities, illegalities and atrocities. However, Its important to note that the low pay Police Officers receive should not be a reason why they should become arm robbers in uniform, and convert the police stations into extortion and exploitation grounds.
