The President who was received by the police chief Major General Abdillahi Abdillahi Fadal Iman was at length briefed about the general operations and procedures of the servicemen.
He visited each and every sectional department of the police headquarters whereby various sectional heads gave him briefs.
The President was greeted by a police guard mounted in his honour at the compounds of the NPD headquarters.
The Head of State also made the same type of visit to the Defense headquarters whereby according to Presidential Spokesman Mohamud Warsame Jama, he inspected and toured all the major departments and sections of the army headquarters and similarly received briefings on their various operations.
The gesture of touring working stations is a major means of boosting the morale and working spirit of the staff.
