Ms. Christine Alalo head of the Child and Family Protection Department of the Uganda Police Force takes up a new assignment in Somalia as Deputy Police Commissioner AMISSON. For the 5 years that Christine worked as the head of the Child and Family Protection Department, CEDOVIP enjoyed a fruitful partnership which resulted in key tangible achievements particularly with the work on the proposed GBV directorate, police training curriculum and strengthening the capacity of Police officers in handling GBV cases. Infact her out standing commitment and achievements at the Department earned her an award from the European Union’s Human rights Defenders Award in 2014.
We are sure that she will excel in her new assignment and wish her all the best!.
At the CFPD, Christine will be replaced by Ms. Maureen Atuhaire, a Superintendant of Police as the new department head. Ms. Maureen has previously worked as the Deputy Director of the CFPD while Christine was the head. We wish to welcome Maureen and we pledge to work with her and provide her with the necessary support in our joint efforts to ensure that the Uganda Police Force prioritizes GBV response and prevention.
