Namibian president inaugurates Chinese-built regional police headquarters
2018/06/20

WINDHOEK, June 15 (Xinhua) -- Namibia's President, Hage Geingob, Friday officially inaugurated the Oshikoto Police Regional Headquarters and the Omuthiya Police Station situated in the north of the country.

The facilities were constructed and completed last year by construction firm, China Jiangxi International Namibia.

At the event on Friday, the president in a statement said the purpose of constructing these structures is to ensure that effective administration of law enforcement is available nationwide.

Although this was the first police facility to be inaugurated this year, he said more is to come, among them, the new construction of the Police National Headquarters in Windhoek, whose construction is nearing completion.

According to Geingob, the continued improvement of the police infrastructure is also geared towards ensuring that police forces have access to a decent and conducive working environment.

"Modern infrastructure plays a role in availing facilities that enhance job satisfaction, and this contributes to improved performance. By providing our police officers with new and improved infrastructure we are enabling them to be more efficient and effective in carrying out their duties," he added.

The president said the headquarters will aid in relieving the burden from other police facilities within the region, by providing accommodation and care for suspected offenders and perpetrators from this area.

In 2008 when Omuthiya was proclaimed the capital town of Oshikoto, the construction of the state-of-the-art headquarters was planned to ensure police services are made available in the new town.
