NamPol HQ will save millions in rent

Geingob promises better conditions

15 October 2019 | Misdaad
The new national headquarters of the Namibian Police will save government more than N$42 million in rent a year, president Hage Geingob said at inauguration of the N$440-million building.

“With this new facility, a saving of over N$3.5 million on rental fees [per month] will be realised, which makes this facility, where various departments are now housed under one roof, a worthy investment,” Geingob said on Friday.

NamPol plans to build more police stations in remote areas as well, because it has a backlog of similar capital infrastructure which are essential for the safety and security of the country.

The building, which took five years to construct, houses 400 personnel on 10 floors and has a helipad atop.

“Let me stress that the establishment of modern and state-of-the-art police facilities alone do not translate into success against crime and this world-class facility should permit the force to execute tasks on a similar scale,” Geingob said.

'Spare no efforts'

He pledged more funds to NamPol to ensure better working conditions and prevent officers from being vulnerable to criminal acts.

“The government will spare no efforts to embark on projects aimed at enhancing the working conditions of our police force by availing funds, where possible, to the ministry of safety and security,” said Geingob.

He wants funds for appropriate training of members of the force to deal with an array of crimes, especially gender-based violence, as well as adequate human resources and technical means.

“All members of the force at police stations countrywide should be able to immediately attend to reports of gender-based violence cases in their respective areas of jurisdiction, instead of solely relying on the unit specialised in the subject,” Geingob said. - Nampa
