Community policing: 10,000 recruits to be deployed to LG of origin – IG

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Alkali Baba Usman, has said that the 10,000 recruited constables will be deployed to their LGA of origin to tackle the prevalent security challenges in the country and strengthen community policing.

Speaking at the constables’ 2022 Passing-Out-Parade (POP) in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Wednesday, the IGP said only 11 failed to make the ceremony due to medical issues and training rigours.

Represented by the AIG Ede Ayuba, the IGP said the police intended to recruit 10,000 officers yearly to fill the gap in the shortage of personnel.

He said, “This is 2020 Batch. As they are passing out, in no distant time, the 2021 Batch would come in, while the 2022 would stand by. So, by the time we go to the field with all these numbers, we would have shored up our number to a higher level.

“They would be redeployed to their original local government of origin to be part of community policing efforts,” while charging the new police personnel to see Nigerians as their employers.

He said, “It’s the taxes of Nigerians that are being used to pay your salaries. So treat them cautiously and respect their personalities.”
