  1. It pains me to see the Zambia Police being looked down upon. This is the institution that’s recognized under the Constitution to fight crime and ensure law & order but it hasn’t received the necessary support. 1 vehicle per station isn’t enough, there’s no policy on careers development for officers and those that have upgraded their qualifications sponsor themselves. With a well-funded Zambia Police we don’t need DEC or ACC or Task Force or whatever. All these should just be departments under the Zambia Police. It was embarrassing to notice that the Head of the Task Force was getting a salary 20 times more than that of the IG! Please Bally you have an opportunity to introduce reforms in the ZP and we’ll support you. We have many seasoned men that can help you with these reforms
