Last year’s Inter-Forces Champions, the Uganda Police Force (UPF), in a triumphant display of marksmanship, emerged victorious on November 24, 2023, in the shooting range competitions held at Kigo Shooting Ground.

According to the Police Force, they showcased exceptional prowess by clinching the top position in short-range shooting and securing a commendable second place in long-range shooting. Additionally, their mastery in falling plates garnered recognition, solidifying their standing as the leading team with an impressive 2,510 points.

The final rankings unfolded with the UPDF securing second place with 2,487 points, followed by the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) with 1,564 points and the Uganda Prisons Service with 1,214 points.

Closing the shooting range festivities, Deputy Director of Welfare Production and Sports, Senior Commissioner of Police (SCP), Bazil Mugisha, extended gratitude to all participating forces, commending their spirited engagement and exemplary discipline throughout their time at Kigo Shooting Grounds.

He emphasised the unifying impact of such events, fostering cohesion among the forces.

“This interaction is a unifying factor and a catalyst for bringing the forces together. Witnessing your collaborative spirit is encouraging, epitomising the essence of these Interforce Games,” he added.

As the shooting range segment concludes, attention now turns to the broader Interforce Games scheduled to kick off on Monday, November 27, at Kabalye Training School in Masindi. With the overarching theme, “Fostering wellness and inter-agency cooperation for a safe and secure society,” the games promise to be a testament to unity and collective commitment to ensuring the safety and security of the nation.
