Members of the Federal Police Commission’s Crime Prevention Sector have been working on problem-solving innovations alongside crime prevention activities.
Three members of the Federal Police Commission’s Crime Prevention Sector Two Battalion in Burayu town have created problem-solving projects on their own initiative.
With the help of their own pockets, the police created striking disarmament kits and modern weapons storage bins, tables for the army’s dining room and the army rack, as well as inventions for fitness.
In the past, there has been a lack of strong control over the handling of weapons, and there have been many gaps in the rapid response to security problems due to misuse of weapons used by police for security missions. During the discussion, the members said that they have made modern weapons storage boxes out of metal and that they have prepared a document for Ganta commanders to control weapons while the army is engaged in police missions.
Deputy Inspector Hagere Kenisa also said that the security forces have been able to solve the problems that have been observed in the army camp in the past.
In addition, the police have created innovations that can be used for dipping, popping and other physical activities.
