THE Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is not home to dishonest and
unprofessional officers who tarnish the force's image by engaging in
corrupt and criminal activities, Commissioner-General Dr Augustine Chihuri
has said.

His sentiments come after it emerged that expelled policemen were mounting
illegal roadblocks using spikes to collect cash from unsuspecting people.

Addressing officers at the Legal Services Directorate Strategic Workshop
in Harare, Comm-Gen Chihuri said he was pleased to note that the force's
legal directorate continued to hold workshops discussing pertinent matters
relating to improving service delivery.

He said the force did not require the calibre of officers and lawyers that
were not honest.

"For the avoidance of doubt, let me emphasise this point for the umpteenth
time in the presence of all of you.

"The ZRP is not home to dishonest and unprofessional persons. And it will
neither brook nor incubate any acts of corruption, improper performance of
duty nor timidity that tarnishes the good name of our organisation,"
Comm-Gen Chihuri said in a speech read on his behalf by Deputy Comm-Gen
Godwin Matanga who is responsible for administration.

He said attributes such as discipline, hard-work, research and
investigative skills, logical thinking and sound judgment were essential
for the development of well-polished lawyers and police commanders.

Comm-Gen Chihuri said these attributes challenged them to be self-starters
that required "no cranking" in dealing with cases assigned to them.

"Thus, the quality of legal advice, which our lawyers render to the
organisation will equally reflect on their commitment and ability to add
value to the organisation.

"Similarly, the quality of your performance as police commanders has a
huge bearing on the organisation and above all, on the quality of service
we render to members of the public," he said.

He said the subdivision of the directorate into three distinct sections –
disciplinary appeals, court process and legal drafting – had allowed the
section to clear all outstanding disciplinary appeal cases for last year.

Comm-Gen Chihuri said the force was also grateful for the initiative by
the Legal Services to further train chief superintendents on the handling
of disciplinary cases and applications under the Public Order and Security
Act.

He said this was evidenced by the decline in the number of applications
for disciplinary trial reviews and appeals.

He said he was confident that the decentralisation of the High Court
services to smaller towns outside the city and Bulawayo would enhance the
speedy finalisation of police disciplinary cases.

The Legal Services Department director Senior Assistant Commissioner Eve
Mlilo, officers commanding provinces and the force's lawyers attended the
workshop.
