US agency seal partnership with police

23 July 2014, 21:30

Abuja - The Nigeria Police Force has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with United States Department of States Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement. 

Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar, on behalf of the Nigeria Police Force and the US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle executed the MoU.

According to Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, the partnership is part of the comprehensive measures geared towards tackling emerging crimes, strengthening the criminal justice system and improving the capacity of officers in the area of technologies, new policing concepts and practices and effectively addressing the issues of insurgency confronting the nation especially in the North-Eastern part of the country.

That region is worst affected by the ongoing terror Boko Haram is perpetrating.

Mba said the Ambassador noted that the Police Force would benefit from the International Police Education and Training Programme run by the US authorities with funding from the US Department.

He also noted that the training pact would help to improve and modernize police training in Nigeria and bring about a well-trained Nigeria Police dedicated to the highest standards of ethical conduct, proficiency in law enforcement, support and build on efforts of Nigeria Police to implement sustainable development.
