EENHANA, 08 NOV (NAMPA) – The Namibian Police Force (NamPol)’s first crime prevention suggestion box for Eenhana was unveiled here on Friday.
The suggestion box is located at the BH Business Complex which is situated in the centre of Eenhana.
In a statement read on his behalf by his special advisor retired Major-General Peter Nambundunga, Ohangwena Governor Usko Nghaamwa said crime instils fear and disrupts people’s freedom to carry out their daily activities and routines.
He said crime also infringes on people’s freedom.
“NamPol as the public institution charged with the responsibilities of maintaining law and order and the protection of lives and property should be applauded for making headway in the fight against crime throughout the country,” the governor noted.
He went on to call on the people of his region, especially the residents of Eenhana, to step up their collaboration with the police with a view toward curbing crime as the police cannot be everywhere at all times due to limitations such as manpower and technical resources.
Nghaamwa reminded residents that reporting crime via the suggestion box is anonymous, confidential and is free of charge.
He also said the box is the property of the government and should be protected against vandalism and is not to be used for advertisements.
