4.2 Measures for the management and security of government SALW stocks

All security agencies have undertaken to register and maintain proper records for all firearms owned and controlled by them, through computerized databases. This will enhance accountability for firearms, improve capacity for verification of stocks and help the tracing of any lost and recovered firearms.

The Uganda Police Force (UPF) has initiated a computerized database for firearms owned, issued and regulated by the police, as well as firearms seized or recovered during law enforcement duties. The database includes civilian firearms and their licenced owners, as well as firearms in the possession of the private security organizations.

[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
