Delta officers to be moved
Some 200 members of the police’s motorcycleriding Delta squad are to be divided among various branches of the force. It was revealed yesterday that of the 220 policemen that made up the squad, 100 are likely to join the crime prevention unit (OPKE), 80 have asked to become part of the riot squad, while the rest are set to be assigned to the DIAS motorcycle-riding unit. The shake-up is happening as a result of the government’s decision to disband the Delta squad. The policemen joining OPKE will undergo two weeks of training before taking up their new duties.
