SENIOR officers of the Namibian Police have been promoted and moved to new positions.
The Inspector-General of the Namibian Police, Lieutenant General Sebastian Ndeutunga, has appointed Deputy Commissioner Moritz !Naruseb as the Head of the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) and promoted him from the rank of a Deputy Commissioner to that of a Commissioner. Commissioner !Naruseb is a highly qualified detective with 25 years of experience in organised crime investigations.
Furthermore, Ndeitunga transferred and appointed the long-serving, dynamic and experienced investigator, Commissioner Nelius Becker from being the Head of the CID to the Head of Namibian Police Forensic Science Institute (NPFSI), effective from 1 September 2020.
Commissioner Becker will be replacing national forensic expert, Dr. Paul Ludik, who will be retiring from the public service at the end of August 2020. He is retiring with honour and dignity.
Subsequent to the retirement of the then Head of Special Field Force Directorate, the Inspector General appointed Commissioner Elias Mutota as the new Head of that directorate, whereas his position as Head of Special Branch Directorate was filled by Deputy Commissioner Michael Abraham, who has since been promoted to Commissioner rank.
Commissioner Abraham hails from the Very Important Persons Directorate (VIP) and was responsible for Security.
The Inspector General said the management, rank and file and civilian component of the Namibian Police is proud of the senior officers’ continuous commitment, leadership and the dedicated policing service toward the Namibian nation.
