Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu has declared that modern policing is no longer driven by brute force, but the deployment of intellect, respect for extant laws, sound professional judgment and civility to citizens.
Speaking while decorating 13 newly promoted Assistant Inspectors General of Police with their new ranks at Force headquarters on Wednesday, IGP Adamu said, “Within the Nigerian context, we inherited some internal security threats touching on banditry, kidnapping, armed robbery, cyber crime and cultism.
“However, the engagement of community driven, intelligence led and technology a guided policing strategies as well as the renewed commitment of personnel of the Nigerian Police to their mandates have combined to engender a drastic reduction in these crimes across the country.
” In order to sustain this achievement, some of you, the newly promoted officers, shall be deployed to critical policing posts where your strength of character and professionalism shall be optimally tested.
“The Nigerian Police and indeed, the entire citizens of our beloved nation shall therefore, be looking up to you to manifest these qualities as you assume the responsibilities attached to your new career status. I trust that you shall not fail the force, neither will you fail the nation in this arduous national duty.
