Traffic Officer To Be Accompaned By Armed Officer

Traffic police officers will now have to be accompanied by an armed police officer when operating, it has been advised.

This is contained in a circular and is coming at a time when there has been a spate of attacks on traffic police officers during enforcement of road regulations.

“Make sure you are accompanied by an armed police officer or have someone within the team to carry a riffle when going for traffic checks, no team should be found without a firearm,” reads the communique signed by D Kawaye, Officer In Charge Service Traffic and Transport.

MFN understands that the decision is aimed at ensuring security for the traffic officers.
