Police urged to resolve issues with public

10 February 2016, 20:46

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.
