The Nigeria Police Force, alongside the management of the CLEEN Foundation on the 28th of March, held a conference, revitalizing the Police Executive Forum at the Bolton White Hotel, Abuja.

ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, (FPRO), revealed this in a statement signed on Saturday.

The Opening Remarks by the IGP and the Chairman PSC, Prof. Etannibi Alemika of CLEEN Foundation stated the pertinent need for a modern form of policing which would include efforts from the Nigeria Police as well as every society member.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, ably represented by DIG Bala Ciroma in his speech stated that it was imperative that the NPF adapt to the rapidly evolving society so as to boost Police efficiency and help the Nigeria Police carry out its duties, encouraging proactive measures rather than preventive measures.

The IGP also advised a hybrid system of police which would include the implementation of technology in our traditional policing system and would result in the high policing standards.

The IGP also said that the POCACOV was an example of this innovative approach which represents a coordinative preventive measure aimed at educating our youths and breaking the cycle of violence.

Acknowledging the limitations faced and the challenges, the IGP assured that these challenges would be overcome by collaborative efforts of the NPF and other security agencies

Addressing the forum, the Chairman Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Hon. Makki Yalleman advised on fostering positive relationships not just between agencies but with community members also.

The Chairman stated that the purpose of the POLICING EXECUTIVE FORUM was to further boost the capacity and proficiency of the NPF.

He said this was in ensuring that the NPF evolved to a modern policing practice in tandem with the security challenges in Nigeria.

The Attorney General of the Federation, Mr Lateef Fagbemi ably represented by Mrs. Chinwe Obasi also highlighted the pertinent need for a synergy between the Ministry of Justice and the NPF, which would yield easy prosecution and finalization of criminal cases.
