The over 300 Flying Squad Unit operatives will know their fate today after it was disbanded last week by the Inspector General of Police.
According to the CID spokesperson Vincent Ssekatte, the operatives most of whom are civilians and special police constables are supposed to assemble at the Criminal Investigations Department headquarters in Kibuli, with all their equipment to get further instructions.
The IGP Martin OkothOchola established a new unit dubbed Organized Crimes headed by Senior Superintendent of Police Mark Odong.
This unit that is yet to get personnel, will deal with tasks that the Flying Squad unit was handling. However, the new unit has no personnel yet.
Mr. Vincet Ssekatte said there are plans to ensure that criminals are not given room to reorganise.
“Not all operatives will be thrown out. We are going to screen them. Those who will meet CID standards will be redeployed in the CID. Those with questionable back ground will be handled in accordance with the Police human resource standards,” Mr Ssekate said.
