Abuja - The Inspector General of Police, Solomon
Arase, has urged officers to address issues that result in conflict between
them and members of the public.
He proposed this as he restated his commitment to making
officers of the Nigeria Police Force more responsive and accountable for their
actions in the dispensation of duty.
Arase was speaking at a just-ended capacity building
workshop at designing indicators for the Complaint Response Unit (CRU), held at
the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

“The IGP urged the participants to identify those areas that
usually bring conflicts between the officers and men of the Force and members
of the public with a view to resolving them,” said Olabisi Kolawale, Force
Public Relations Officer.
The office of the Vice-President and the Nigeria Police
Force, in collaboration with the Munk School
of Global Affairs University of Toronto, Canada, organised the workshop, which
was aimed at honing the skills of the officers of the Complaint Response Unit.
The unit handles complaints of the members of the public
against the force.
