195 staff of the Uganda Prisons Service, including 180 males and 15 females, have successfully completed a rigorous 3-month Specialized Safety and Security Course at the School of Infantry Bihanga in Ibanda District. The pass-out ceremony is presided over by Mr. John Bosco Tumwebaze, Assistant Commissioner General of Prisons (Director Administration)

The program covered vital study areas such as Physical Training, Skill at Arms, Map Use, Counter Insurgence (COIN), Communication Skills, Field Drills, First Aid, and Tactics, Field Craft, and Obstacle Crossings.

The successful completion of this training not only signifies personal accomplishments but also marks a significant milestone in elevating overall safety and security standards within Uganda Prisons Service.


In response, ACP Ndori Leni, Regional Prisons Commander (RPC) for North Western Region, warmly welcomed and congratulated SCP Frank Baine Mayanja for conducting such a crucial and impactful training in the region.

The session not only stressed the importance of customer care and public relations but also highlighted the significance of financial literacy, continuous improvement, and fostering a positive outlook within the prison service.

This ongoing initiative aims to enhance the effectiveness and capacity of staff within Uganda Prisons Service, emphasizing the crucial development of both senior and junior officers across all administrative regions.


Moreover, Mr. Baine highlighted the significance of avoiding common mistakes in their duties, including inadequate supervision, greed, misinterpretation of administrative directives, lack of interest, assumption of excessive power, and human rights abuse.

Mr. Baine integrated essential financial literacy and mindset components, emphasizing the transformative potential of choices, chances, and changes in enhancing individual financial statuses. Additionally, he elaborated on the four cardinal rules of money: earning, accumulating, safeguarding, and multiplying funds.

Advocating for the implementation of dedicated customer care desks and complaint books in all prison units, Mr. Baine urged the Officers-in-Charge to ensure their establishment for improved service delivery. He expressed confidence that the session would significantly enhance their professional attitudes. He extended warm wishes for a prosperous 2024 to all attendees.
