Jos - Two officers in the Plateau Police Command on Wednesday in Jos received the State Commissioner of Police awards for dedication to duties and excellence in crime prevention.
The officers are Usman Adamu and Saad Ibrahim, who are both Chief Superintendents of Police (CSP).
The state Commissioner of Police, Chris Olakpe who decorated the officers, said they were honoured for their consistency in high performance in their line of duties.
Olakpe, who described Adamu as the engine room of the command’s Administration Department, extolled him for discharging his duties without complaining.
“I will urge him to continue with the good work,” he said.
The commissioner also said Ibrahim, who is the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Laranto Police Station, had consistently and tenaciously been fighting crime in his area.
Responding on behalf of the recipients, Adamu said they were ready to work tirelessly for the progress of the command.
He said they were dedicating the award to their families and their colleagues who had given them the support and co-operation while discharging their duties.
“I appeal to other officers and men of the command to make more sacrifice for an efficient service to the entire people of Plateau,” Adamu said.
