“The DCI attention has been drawn to allegations doing rounds in social media insinuating forced resignation of 7 DCI officers. The Directorate of Criminal Investigations clarifies as follows: That like in any other progressive institution, resignation of staff to pursue other interests in life is well provided for in the National Police Service, under the NPS Service Standing Orders (SSO).
Therefore, the officers reported to have resigned did so under the 24-hour rule on diverse dates last month and were not forced to leave the service as alleged. The detectives who were based at different specialized units within the Directorate, left to pursue their careers in the private sector as financial investigators, fraud experts, IT specialists among others.” said DCI
