The presence of a military outfit in the police has recently become a constant in the everyday lives of Ugandans. It has been regarded as a practice to have a military officer attached to the police to coordinate military operations in the police. Kampala Metropolitan sections of stations have designated and reserved positions for Special Forces Command(SFC) staff.
Police have regarded operations by SFC to be a normal working environment after Special Investigation Units like that in Kireka have been taken over by SFC. Asan Kasingye, Political Commissar of Uganda Police said that if SFC is part of UPDF, they work with them because the security of Uganda is not only on Police.
After the death of former Police Spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi, HE Yoweri Museveni desired to restore the sanity because he says the Police has been infiltrated by criminals.
