‘Government has re-affirmed its determination to improve  conditions of service for security personnel in the country through provision of decent accommodation.

Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo says the construction of  police houses throughout the country is one of the ways government is helping security personal to live in decent houses while rendering their noble service to all Zambians.

The minister said when he officiated at the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of 110 housing units in Kasama.

Mr. Kampyongo explained that the construction of new housing units for police officers in Kasama will be completed within 15 months.

2, 350 housing units will be constructed for security personnel across the country under phase one and that an additional 2,200 houses will be done in the second phase.

Mr. Kampyongo also disclosed that the government is addressing other challenges faced by the Zambia police service such as rehabilitation and construction of offices, provision of uniforms, transport, and modern equipment , among others.

He has since called on police officers to be disciplined and ensure that they maintain law and order in the country.

And speaking at the same function, Northern Province Minister Brian Mundubile said the construction of the police houses in the provincial capital will bring about decency in the livelihood of the officers.

He has called on Zambians to support and compliment government projects running throughout the country.

Meanwhile, Regional Police Commissioner Richard Mweene expressed happiness with the move by government to construct the housing units for police officers in the region.

Mr. Mweene said the construction of the police houses will greatly motive the officers to work extra hard and will in turn bring about improved service delivery to the public.

He urged police officers in the province to look after the houses once they are constructed warning that regular inspections will be carried out to ensure all police housing units were kept clean at all times.
