On Wednesday, 21st December 2017, the Minister of Local Government reminded the DASSO Coordinators that the public interest is the only thing that matters in terms of protecting and ensuring the security in Rwandan society.

The recall was made during security meeting that was held in Kigali bringing together DASSO Coordinators and their Deputies and Rwanda National Police as they discuss the security issues and collaboration between both organs in enforcing security at local government level.

IGP Gasana Emmanuel appreciated the level of professionalism of DASSO personnel in their day-to-day performance delivery ever since the organ was established three years ago and recommended for its continuity and strengthening.

He said:  “We need continued collaboration in preventing and fighting crimes committed mostly through enemy infiltrations, drug abuse, bribery, gender based violence, injustice, destruction of property, settlement, drunkardness, human security issues, communication and reporting”.

The Inspector General of Police Gasana Emmanuel pledged to offer a double-cabin car for operation to any DASSO Coordinator who will excellently perform his or her duty in the District.
