More than 120 senior police officers are leaving their areas of deployment for a four months training course in Intermediate management and leadership.
They include 94 District Police Commander (DPCs) and 7 Regional Police Commanders (RPCs).
The intermediate course is part of the package training that comes with promotion in rank from Assistant Superintendent of police (ASP) to Superintendent of Police (SP).
It will be held at the Oliver Tambo Leadership Training School at Kaweweta in Nakaseke District from Monday, April 13th.
The course, which will leave more than 90 districts and four divisions around the country without the deployed commanders, comes at a time when the country is on a red terror alert and a few months to the General Elections.
The gap is most likely to be felt in places where more than one officer is leaving for training like Jinja road police station where the RPC, DPC and OC CIID will all be out of office.
But Fred Enanga the Police spokesperson said with all the structures in place, policing will not be challenged.
Enanga said with the absence of the DPCs, the next in command who is the Officer in Charge of the station (OC Station) will assume the position of acting DPC while the next in command will take over the position that will be vacant.
