WINDHOEK: The Inspector-General of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol), Lieutenant-General Sebastian Haitota Ndeitunga on Wednesday received an International Leadership Award from the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) of the United Kingdom.
The award was handed over to Ndeitunga by the British High Commissioner to Namibia, Marianne Young, at the Israel Patrick Iyambo Police College in the capital.
The award, according to Young, recognises Lieutenant-General Ndeitunga as instrumental in taking forward the vision to protect and serve all Namibians by implementing a successful neighbourhood policing model in Windhoek.
In his acceptance speech, Ndeitunga said his receipt of the award would not be complete without him highlighting where NamPol as a force came from, and thus paid tribute to the many gallant policemen and women who made the award a reality.
The Inspector-General said NamPol has faced several challenges while executing their mandate as a reputable law-enforcement agency over the years, but each challenge strengthened it, making it a force to reckon with in Namibia.
He further expressed his gratitude towards the political leadership and the management of the force for supporting him in all his undertakings, and also to the rank and file of the force who work with him on a daily basis in taking forward the vision of the Namibian Police Force, which is “To Protect and Serve all People in Namibia”.
