The Zimbabwe Republic Police Commissioner Godwin Matanga has vowed to make Zimbabwe the safest investment destination in the world where investors can pour in their funds to stimulate economic development in the country.
This comes after ZRP’s efforts to restructure their new policing trajectory which is bent on creating a visible policing thrust exercise by the Central Planning Committee.
Commissioner Matanga said investors seek crime free society in which they can safely devote their capital without fear.
“The ZRP follows the mantra of Zimbabwe is open for business. We seek a Zimbabwe where investors can stampede to pour their funds into this country as the safest investment destination in the world. We hope that by assisting government, we can stimulate economic development in the country,” he said.
He added that, supervisory structures have been put in place in all sections of the police force to influence management strategies to enhance a safe investment destination for investors.
“Supervisory mechanisms are in place at all tiers of the police hierarchy must be given the necessary vibrancy. All existing crimes management strategies and several others which may be crafted as demanded by circumstances must be effectively implemented”.
“The desire to pursue a new policing route which is predicated on a visible policing thrust prompted the Central Planning Committee (CPC) to embark on a restructuring exercise. Consequentially, this has seen the adoption of some preliminary structural changes,” added Commissioner Matanga.
Commissioner Matanga further expressed that the revitalisation of police patrol units are aimed at reducing crime and improving the quality service.
“We have revitalised and reinvigorated all police patrols units with a view to assist in reducing crime through increased visibility in all crime prone areas. Those patrols can only help us in earning public confidence from the resultant quality of our service, if the deployments are well planned, adequately supervised, and the members are periodically rotated,” he said.
He said the police will continue to engage and lobby government for the provision of modern equipment consistent to contemporary and mutating policing terrain.
