Cde Chihuri said this at the conferment of ranks to 33 newly promoted superintendents at Morris Depot in Harare.

The commissioner general urged the promoted officers to respond positively to all the challenges of their work, including unwarranted external pressure currently being exerted on the country by the West.

“You should always ensure that you bring peace and tranquillity as the country is fighting Western imperialism,” he said.

Cde Chihuri urged police officers to continue discharging their duties diligently despite having a few resources at their disposal.

”Police should continue to work hard with the few resources under the illegal economic sanctions.”

Out of the 33 promoted superintendents, 28 were men and 5 were women.


Meanwhile, international police organisation, Interpol, is on the verge of scoring high following the introduction of I-Link that seeks to improve information exchange between police organisation.


The I-Link is an information management system that will see the police synchronising their data base to enable Interpol member countries to swiftly submit, record and access shared police information.


Police Commissioner General Augustine Chihuri, who was represented by the Deputy Commissioner General, Levy Sibanda said this will go a long way in sharing information in police forces across borders.


The quick exchange of information will facilitate law enforcement cooperation when carrying out functions such as crime prevention, detection and apprehension of regional and international fugitives.


I-Link systems will enable police organisations through the National Central Bureaus to access the right information which is critical in expediting international investigations and law enforcement.
