I think that the members of this "seminar " one of which should be tasked with receiving ideas from the VDCs who after all are the reciepents and representitives of the communities in Gambia,I also noticed that Techonology was mentioned,a very good and useful tool for the police but care must be taken not to lose contact with a human presence,

Just a thought

GPF engages stakeholders on strategic framework

The Standard: May 11, 2021
By Olimatou Coker


The Gambia Police Force (GPF) has Thursday held a consultative seminar on the strategic framework of The Gambia police.

The objective of the seminar was to discuss the GPF’s strategic direction and transformational roadmap.

The event has brought together participants from different sectors in the Ministry of Interior, UNDP, Ministry of Justice, the National Human Rights Commission, and other partners.

Momodou Sowe, Deputy Inspector General of Police, said the crucial role and reliable partnership is pushing the strategic roadmap of the police with clear-cut benchmarks and deliverables based on sound administrative policies.

He said the consultative seminar is to create and maintain operational harmony between the Gambia Police Force and its esteemed stakeholders with focus on new strategic direction and thereby eliminating unnecessary duplication and improve coordination and collaboration towards achieving their common goal.

“My office will continue to remain open to any individual, group or institution that wants to work with The Gambia Police Force to improve public safety and security”.

Foday Fofana, Chief Superintendent of Police, explained the vision, mission, core values, models, and planning strategies that they intend to implement based on best international standards of policing.

He stated that police as an institution cannot do away with technology. “We have to use technology to boost our operations. We have to use technology to implement our constitutional mandate in a more effective and efficient manner because police cannot be everywhere and since we cannot be everywhere, that means we have to use technology to be able to monitor crime and try to boost our investigation capabilities.

“Our intention to shift from manual information management to digital information management to adjust to the realities of time, adding that they have experts among them who can develop software that can suit their co-operations”.

Among other things, he elaborated on including their operational strategies, administration strategies, capacity building and development strategies as well as service support which involves strengthening the procurement unit, establishment budget committees in all regions, to provide pick-ups, prison vans, trucks, patrol vehicles amongst other services.

Lamin Banda, a commissioner of police and a participant at the event, emphasized the importance of the seminar, saying it is a moment that the police are trying to respectively take stock of things that were not working rightly in the previous regime.

“This would give police an insight into the gaps and solicit funding in terms of capacity development, logistical support and improve our manpower base to ensure our activities are policy guided”, he stated.

According to Banda, roadmaps of that nature assist in guiding police interventions, actions or decisions, adding that the insightful instrument will go a long way in catching up with modern.

Amid rising crimes and murders around the Greater Banjul Area and beyond, our reporter spoke to some concerned citizens and a foreign resident who believes that a huge number of military officers with heavy ammunition should be deployed within the country in order to control criminals.

Speaking to one Lamin Janneh, he expressed disappointment with the unusual situation, saying the country never experienced such a high rate of criminality during the First and the Second republics. He added that if the criminals are not hunted and prosecuted, the nation could be attacked by terrorists. The concerned young Gambian said any nation with high rate of criminals is likely to encounter terrorism or rebellion.

“I call on President Barrow and his entire Cabinet to sit with the Security Council and pave the way for a more free crime country. Citizens are now living in fear due to the security threats faced by every individual, whether at home, work place or even on the streets.”

Mr. Janneh further called on the security to keep their heads up and work for the interest of the nation, stating the army should be on patrol with heavy weapons that could scare the criminals.

Alieu Sarr, a Senegalese petty trader also dwelled on the increase of crime rates, indicating that he intended to return home for a while and observe the situation if there would to be change in the future. He added that as a business man who came to find a greener pasture in the country, his hope has faded due to armed robberies.

“I think the government is not doing justice in providing maximum security to its citizens and foreigners who are also contributing to the country’s economy. Though the police are trying to control crimes, I think they need to double up their efforts. If necessary, the military should be given the chance to patrol and well protect the territory.”

Sarr told this medium that he is staying in the country with fear because a Senegalese man was killed in Bansang and recently another one killed at Westfield Monument.

Fatoumatta Bajo, a resident of Ebo Town, also raised concern about the security circumstances, saying women are now afraid to go about their normal businesses, talk less of going out in the evening.

“Women are not physically strong and if we are attacked by armed robbers, they can easily take our belongings, rape or even kill us as well. We need maximum protection and by doing so, all criminals should be eliminated from the country.”
