Inspector General of Police Muhammed Adamu
President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to declare open a three-day retreat for senior police officers holding in Lagos from next Thursday.
The police spokesman, Frank Mba, in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, said the event tagged, ‘Repositioning the Force for the Challenges of Effective Policing in the 21st Century,’ was aimed at “dissecting the dynamics of crime and forging strong networks toward tackling prevalent and emerging crimes in the country.”
The programme, which would be hosted by the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, would have in attendance, local and international policing and security experts, critical stakeholders in internal security management, Deputy Inspectors-General of Police, Assistant Inspectors-General of Police, Commissioners of Police and heads of other strategic formations of the Nigeria Police Force across the federation.
The conference is being coordinated by the Force Public Relations department and Matchmakers Consult International and sponsored by the Lagos State Government with support from other stakeholders.
“It is the expectation of the IGP that at the end of the conference and retreat, strategic managers of the force would have been sufficiently equipped with new policing approaches, guidelines and tools towards effectively addressing prevailing and emerging crimes in the country,” the statement added.
