However, the reality is that for many years, unlike their counterparts in Europe, Australia, Canada, the United States, Brazil, South Africa and other nations, our police officers have not been treated well and fairly,” he posed. He appreciated Government’s efforts to ensure police welfare is catered for but maintained more needed to be done including adding them salaries. “Police service is reflected in the motivation of our officers. Yes, their salaries have been increased but when you consider that these officers are at the receiving ends of bullets and other ordinance, they are not paid enough,” he said.
