Indiscipline traffic officers to face the law

Members of South Sudan National Police Service

A crack down on indiscipline traffic police officers has begun in Juba. South Sudan police Spokesperson, General Daniel Justin told eye radio on Tuesday.

He says  Professional Standard Unit officers have been deployed to different operation sites in the city to monitor the conduct of traffic police.

Justin says some police officers have abandoned their duty locations to others where they can get more money. According to Justin, those whose behaviors are unconventional will be arrested. He also revealed that others impersonate to generate cash.

The move came after some members of the public complained about police misconduct.

Last month, the Minister of Interior was summoned by Transitional National Legislative Assembly to answer police misconduct. This followed a petition by Noah car drivers in which they accused traffic police of constant harassment.
