The police national Spokesperson SSP Emilian Kayima has said that the police force is being highly targeted by criminals.
The police spokesperson made the remarks on Monday while addressing the media at central police station Kampala.
His remarks comes barely three days after two police officers in Kawempe were murdered by unknown assailants and their guns stolen.
It is stated that last week on Thursday two police officers attached to field form unit at Kawempe police station identified as police constable Habyala and Otim were shot dead while on their foot patrol and their guns taken.
Another police officer attached to Sofia police station in Busia district at Uganda Kenya border is currently nursing wounds after unidentified thugs attacked him while on duty and took off with his gun.
“With such kind of violent criminality in the country on police officers, it tells that police officers are a target for criminals”,Kayiima said.
