IGP Alkali tasks commandants on training of police recruits
The 2020/2021 phase of the Nigeria Police Force recruitment will commence on January 10, 2022.
It will hold at the police colleges in Lagos, Kaduna, Maiduguri and Orji River and at 12 other police training institutions across the country.
Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, revealed this during a meeting with commandants of Nigeria Police Colleges at Force Headquarters Abuja.
He said: “As we proceed to the next phase, which is the training of the successful candidates, it is my expectation that all of you, as strategic heads of the training institutions, will facilitate the transition of recruits from civilians to well-groomed police personnel that will see themselves as incorruptible, civil, and true security servants of citizens, with right orientation as protectors of the right of all Nigerians.”
Alkali added: “As custodians and guides of the recruits, you are to provide mentorship by displaying high level of ethical standards. This is important because students learn more, although subconsciously, from watching and imbibing the characters and attitudes of their teachers and instructors. ”
It is for this reason you must practise what you preach to the recruits.”
