Namibian police improve tourists' safety


The Namibian Police will launch a campaign that will make the southern African country a safe tourism destination for all visitors.

The Namibian cited Police Deputy Commissioner Robert Grellmann as saying that they would make tourists aware of safety concerns at all points of entry into the nation.

He said several tourists are victims of “corrupt police officers”, a practice the campaign aims to stop.

“Corruption from police officers is unfortunately a bit of a hiccup we have at the moment and we are working on a bigger solution, but for now, we want tourists to be informed on what their rights are on the occasion they are stopped,” said Grellmann.

“Our plan was to implement this project from 1 June 2024, but that is not a fixed date, we may have to hold it back for a bit, as there are still a lot of logistics to be discussed.”

The police deployed dedicated tourist protection units across key regions to promptly address incidents affecting visitors.
