Suggestion Boxes and Hotlines
- Hits: 8106
In an endeavour to enhance community participation in policing and increase the flow of information from members of the public to the police, Zimbabwe Republic Police embarked on a massive programme in the mid 1990s of installing suggestion boxes at strategic public places throughout the country and hot lines at police stations. The boxes and hotlines provided an opportunity for members of the public to give criminal intelligence to the police whilst remaining anonymous. The hotlines are used by members of the public who wish to communicate suggestions, tips and confidential information to the police.
