Keep politics out of the police

Aug 14, 2017
Mixing police with politics is a recipe for disaster
 
Our police force exists as the enforcers of law, not as a tool for political parties to gain from. They are there to protect the people and maintain peace and security for all citizens.
 
Which is why it is regretful that some police officers routinely abuse their authority to harass the very people they have vowed to protect, and often manage to get away scot-free.
 
Such misuse of their authority also occurs within their own ranks, with a superior officer recently being accused of physically abusing his subordinates.
 
We believe that our police force is largely made up of decent people who want to serve the nation. But even one weak link is often enough to undermine the entire chain of command.
 
Mixing police with politics is a recipe for disaster, and our politicians need to understand that sooner rather than later.
