DISCIPLINE is the fulcrum of any police organisation to achieve its goals.

This was said by Commissioner General of Police, Godwin Matanga, in his opening remarks at the 2022 ZRP Senior Officers' Conference held in Harare yesterday.

Comm-Gen Matanga also warned the police officers against bad conduct.

"The shameful behaviour by some members as well as corruption by rogue elements within the rank and file continues to bring disdain on the image of the organisation.

"May I reiterate that the organisation will not condone indiscipline of whatever form. All errant police officers, regardless of rank have been put on notice.

"For the avoidance of doubt, we shall not falter in emboldening our zero-tolerance stance on corruption," he said.

Comm-Gen Matanga noted with disappointment that on the implementation of 2021 resolutions, some senior officers have shown lethargy and lack of interest.

"While you were the architects of the said resolutions, you became marooned from them, thus severely compromising service delivery.

"I wish to underscore that the organisation will never be a niche for commanders whose mediocrity is palatable fodder for criminals.

"We will use instruments you designed yourselves.

"If such a trend persists, guided by the implementation matrix, a time for reckoning will certainly be upon us, not in the distant future," he said.
