According to Besigye, the current Uganda police force and other security agencies are known for intimidating and harassing people, which makes people avoid police.
 
"Uganda police is not police of the people but police to protect Museveni and his dictatorial rule," Besigye said.
 
Besigye also told the people he will transform the different security institutions to make them become pro-people and create a friendly environment for people to access them for better service delivery than causing fear and panic in the population.
