Government has bought three helicopters for the police to help improve their operations, Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo has said.
Mr Kampyongo said the helicopters will enhance efficiency of the police in carrying out their duties.
He said this on Radio Phoenix’s “Let the people talk” radio discussion yesterday. The programme also featured Foundation for Democratic Process executive director McDonald Chipenzi and Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani.
“This is the first time in the history of Zambia that our police will have helicopters for operations. The helicopters will be in the country within the next three months,” he said.
Mr Kampyongo said government is undertaking a number of reforms in the police service.
