Zambia Police Launches the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Police

General News Zambia Police Launches the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Police

Inspector-General of Police Kakoma Kanganja says there is need for Police officers to uphold human rights and respect gender in the course of duty in the new normal.

Mr. Kanganja says policing communities under the Coronavirus pandemic has instigated much public discourse and anxiety.

He was speaking during the launch of the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Zambia Police in response to the Covid-19.

He said the police has been identified as one of the critical stakeholders of the Covid-19 preparedness and response programme by the Ministry of Health, and the men and women in uniform are equal to the task.

He said a document is an important tool that will help the institution to effectively contribute to the achievement of the response program.

Mr Kanganja has since directed all Provincial, District and Unit commanders to quickly familiarize themselves with the SOP for effective dissemination of duty.

Meanwhile, United Nations Resident Coordinator Coumba Mar Gardio said the intervention comes as part of the collective UN response to COVID-19 in Zambia.

Dr. Mar Gardio said UN is advocating for a three point response which includes large scale, coordinated and comprehensive health response guided by the world Health organization.

And United Nations Development Program UNDP Resident Representative Lionel Laurens said the COVID-19 has provided institutions with a litmus test of how to collaborate in a timely, coordinated and efficient way to address a common challenge.

Mr Laurens said experts from the UN police, UNDP New York and the United Nations Human Rights Commission were all involved in the development of the Standard Operating Procedure.

  1. The most corrupt inept PIG in the history of zambia.

    He acts like a PF street cader thug.

    This one is going to jail and will be sued by many injured Zambians who have been maimed by his men under pf instructions.

  2. Mwami 1 if you haven’t seen the video of how that woman detective from Woodlands tortured the gassing suspect by holding his mavwalo then you’re not fit to hold that office. All revelations were recorded, that’s why we’re calling you to say something about the gassing project. Gassers are not in court but those that killed gassers are, what kind of justice is that. Make a name for yourself please arrest some rogue Minister and lock him upwe will cheer you for now it’s thumbs down for you

  5. A standard operating guideline was always there even before COVID – 19. It comes from the processes, laws, procedures and human rights tenets that have always existed. It is not for a lack of them that the Zambia Police has acted so brutally and un-professionally. It is because no one has instituted the need to follow due process or inculcate the ethos that the police ought to act professional at all times or be sanctioned heavily. It is also because the police has been ‘purchased’ by the current regime, it’s officers placed at the PF banquet table and in the process it has abandoned the citizens it’s meant to neutrally serve.

  6. I may scrap off the entire force completely, handover all uniforms to cadres, because they love those uniforms.
    Then start afresh with female officers and gays in white uniforms, matching the $700 bicycles. They will be softer. All straight male officers will become Prison Waders.

  7. @Madilu System, we have the best Police Officers in the region, our officers compete well in the world. Those officers seconded to UN agencies are among the best. Zambian Police Officers are still in foreign missions like Liberia, Sierra Leon and even Geneva. They look unprofessional here because the police command is rotten and inept. There’s so much political interference since Lameck Mangani was at Home Affairs. The couple of Kampyongo and ECL2021 in charge of the police is reflected in the behavior of the police, Kanganja can’t do anything. He just needs his salary to feed his family, it’s a painful job

  9. So in his absent wisdom, this man’s Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Zambia Police starts with an illegal arrest and detention of innocent youths who are law abiding and wish to obtain a permit to have a peaceful demo? Why do some people speak as if their brains are absent without leave AWOL?

  10. There is no police in Zambia. There are only cadres following PF wishes. Police will be there next year after PF loses. What we have now is useless. I don’t trust anything coming out of a corrupt system, we will install an anti virus and scan the system next year to eliminate all the malware in the system

  12. Traffic police all over the place in lusaka and in numbers. All traffic lights have them waiting to pounce. As if this is not enough road blocks everywhere. Looks like they are not being paid and so have been told to collect fines from the public. People are suffering at the hands of these police. Bwana minister, we have been advising you so many times to curb this nuisance but you have failed. These are some of the issues which are affecting the citizenry and dont be surprised when the same citizens boot you out next year out of frustration. By then it will be too late.
