The government has embarked on construction of new houses for the National Police and the Prisons Service. Currently, there are 1,850 housing units under construction using Industrial Building Systems (IBS). This building technology (IBS) enables quick construction of multi-storied houses and has greatly contributed to their increase over the last 4 years.
The project aims to alleviate the housing shortage for the National Police Service and to improve the morale and welfare of officers. As a result of the consolidated housing units, it has made it easier to deploy police in cases of emergency as well as in the day to day operations.
