A delegation of the organisation, led by its President, Dr Ona Ekhomu, made the appeal in Abuja following a courtesy visit to the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase.

Ekhomu, whose organisation pledged to enhance collaborations with the force, meanwhile charged members of the  public to be alive to their civic responsibilities of being law abiding, assist police in crime control and providing  information about criminals to the police.

AISSON is a professional body dedicated to advancing the practice of security and safety in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Arase in his response, appreciated the pledge to collaborate with the police.

"He re-emphasized his commitment to make the welfare of his men paramount and also his thrust on a paradigm shift on  strategic plan that will make Nigeria Police operate in line with international standard. He further promised a robust  symbiotic relationship with the Association," Emmanuel Ojukwu, Police Spokesperson, said.
