He added that the new policing concept would bring about development because once the communities were safe the President’s vision of one village one dam, planting for food and jobs and one district one factory policies would be successful.

He noted that they would do this recruitment diligently since it is only when the communities are safe that investors would be motivated to invest in the country.
