WINDHOEK, 18 OCT (NAMPA) - The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) is busy conducting a personnel audit and verification process of all staff members employed by the national police force countrywide.
The process, which has been ongoing across the country over the past few months, was officially confirmed by NamPol spokesperson, Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kanguatjivi in a telephonic interview with Nampa here on Friday.
“It is true. With this exercise, we want to verify the exact number of the police officers and other staff members who are currently employed by the force.
We further want to update our personnel records’ system and the related database with the exercise of the staff verification process as some people might have died some years ago, but their names might still be contained on our records’ system”, he explained.
Kanguatjivi, therefore, requested all police officers to report themselves to their nearest police stations across the country without delay.
“Kindly ensure that all of you are being verified in order to help avoid inconveniences and regrets in the future”, he advised.
NamPol presently has about 14 000 staff members who are employed by the force and deployed in several towns, settlements and villages in the country's 14 political regions.
The deadline for the personnel audit and verification process of all staff members ends this Saturday, 19 October.
