There is the need to immediately build a Police barracks on a plot of land where the District Headquarters is situated to accommodate the personnel who are staying outside the District. Some of the roads in the district are not motorable which sometimes renders patrols to those communities ineffective.

Hotspots policing strategy introduced in the region is laudable as it is working perfectly to enable the district carry out the strategy to its perfection. Also to extend patrols to the remote communities there is the need to implement motor bike patrols. The public has seen the Police as partners in combating crime and there is the need to sustain the confidence the public has in the service
