Ghani Pays Late Night Visit to District Police Headquarters

KABUL - The president visited a key police compound in the city center on Sunday night where he assessed the wellbeing and activities of policemen.
President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday night visited the Police Headquarters in District 10 in Kabul city and assessed a range of issues including the wellbeing of police soldiers and their families as well as their performance, the Presidential Palace said in a statement.
Kabul Police Chief Mohammad SalimEhsas welcomed Ghani to the compound and thanked him for his unwavering support of security forces.
Ehsas also gave Ghani a brief report of the police’s activities. 
Ghani in turn said he appreciated the sacrifices the security forces were making in the fight against terrorism, organized crime, powerful figures, drugs and kidnappings but said police action needs to be stepped up.
According to the statement Ghani directed officials to increase cooperation with other security institutions in order to improve security for the people and also to consider ways to involve the public in improving security. 
This comes after Ghani last year paid a surprise visit to PD9 headquarters and suspended senior security officials who were found to be negligent in carrying out their duties. Among those suspended was the district police chief.
This came after Ghani found a number of policemen who were meant to be on duty, absent from their posts.   (Tolo news)
