Police in Fort portal have decried over lack of enough stationery that has hindered them perform their duties.
Police officers who talked to www.mknewslink.com on condition of anonymity said that they lack papers to register cases, bond and other office work.
The officers disclosed that that they have reached an extent of putting in their own money to buy papers so that they work on complainants.
Sometimes complainants are asked to photocopy documents on their own or give money to some officers which they said has contributed to corruption at police.
The police officers have further disclosed that this problem has been overdue for about two years making things worse.
However, the acting police spokes person Rwenzori West Solomon Mugisa has refuted the allegations.
Mugisa has disclosed that the department of logistics distributes stationery to every police station at every quarter of the year which is given to every office including lock registers, stationery diary books, acknowledgment prisoners properties among others.
However, Mugisa noted that sometimes the papers are not enough due to high number of complainants that come to police and sometimes papers get finished before the end of the quarter.
