Registration of police personnel promotes accountability and transparency and is crucial for building the Somali government’s capacity in terms of improved financial and personnel management. Regular stipends payments are critical to ensure the loyalty, recruitment, commitment, morale, performance and retention of skilled police officers. The payment of stipends is also a direct contribution of the implementation of the Heegan Plan.
