CHALLENGES OF THE DIRECTORATE
preoccupation of the Directorate countrywide over the years has been how
to realize its objectives in the face of mounting pressure resulting
from an increased volume of both vehicular and human traffic, the blatant
disregard of Road Traffic Rules and Regulations by road users, frequent
traffic congestions and the high rates of accidents. One can also not
forget the image problems afflicting the Unit which in turn
affect the Police Service as a whole.
