Yuletide: IGP Meets Police Strategic Managers Monday

The Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun will be meeting with Police Strategic Managers comprising members of the Force Management Team, Assistant Inspectors-General of Police, Commissioners of Police, and other Heads of Police Formations in the country, on Monday at the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Peacekeeping Hall, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

According to the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the meeting, which is at the instance of the IGP, would address many security issues and review the Police’s anti-crime strategies for efficiency and effectiveness towards peace and order in our dear country.

The IGP would also seize the opportunity to roll out the achievements of the police within the last 10 weeks.

The meeting involves Commissioners of Police and above and other tactical commanders.

“All hands must be on deck to provide adequate security for all and sundry in Nigeria, Adejobi said.

Recall that on Friday, 23rd June 2023, during his inaugural conference, the IGP publicized his new strategy to achieve operational successes and re-ignite public trust.

The highlights of the IGP’s policing vision include; upholding the sanctity of the legal framework of the Nigeria Police Force; tackling the menace of crimes and criminality with the establishment of a specialized Quick Intervention Squad comprising combat-ready Police Mobile Force personnel with effective and enhanced training in crisis de-escalation and violent crime reduction strategies; leveraging cutting-edge tools, data analytics, and intelligence networks for a robust and effective human and technical intelligence gathering process to enhance Police capacity; and strengthened inter-agency collaboration.

Similarly, the new policing vision focuses on enhancing the Police training curriculum with a special focus on attitudinal and behavioural changes; improved welfare, and renewing the Police Officer Support Unit (POSU) of the Police Medical Services to serve as confidential support and counseling facility for all police officers; implementing a new Recognition and Reward system to motivate better and encourage our dedicated personnel; and community policing, through a more vibrant engagement of the Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC), and the establishment of a Citizens Engagement Focus Group.
