The Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun has said that the Police Awards and Commendations ceremony serves as a platform for celebration and a reminder of the importance of accountability and responsibility within law enforcement.

Speaking at the event held at the Congress Hall, Transcorp Hilton Abuja, the IGP said the award has demonstrated the respected but guiding principles that should shape every day of their actions and decisions.

Egbetokun said, “Similarly, recognition will be given to discipline officers who diligently carried out investigations and prosecutions.

“Their efforts have brought offenders to justice, delivered closure to victims and reinforced the rule of law, transforming justice from a mere concept into a tangible reality for all.

“It’ll also be presented in 16 distinct categories, including crime posting side by client, community, policy, investigation, gallantry and integrity, communicating with the force.”

The IGP noted that the Force “remains vigilant in sanctioning those who have acted unprofessionally or in violation of the code of conduct in the course of their duties.

“The Awards Night serves not only as a platform for celebration but also as a reminder of the importance of accountability and responsibility within law enforcement.”
