Police lack resources to fight crimes

Author : | Published: Friday, June 6, 2014

The South Sudan National Police Service says it is facing challenges in fighting crimes in the country due to limited resources.

The Acting Inspector General of Police, General Andrew Kuol Noun, told Eye Radio’s Dawn Show that due to lack of money, they cannot establish many police stations in all the residential areas.

“The government has no enough money to build police stations in many places,” said Gen Kuol. “The resources we have are very limited.”

However, he said they are “trying our best”.

“Now in Juba town, there is no any single residential area which has no police.”

General Kuol urged the Central Equatoria State Government to name the streets inside Juba city before the 9th of July.

He said this will facilitate the operations of the police.

“It will make it easy for the police to give rescue. If the areas are not actually given names as well as the roads to allow the police to reach the areas, it will also be very difficult.”

Early this week the Ministry of Interior signed a memorandum of understanding with the telecom operators to establish an Emergency Call Center in Juba, which will be launched next month.

The Emergency call Center is meant for the public to easily access the police during emergencies.
