IGP announces retreat for senior officers on community policing


The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has endorsed the second yearly retreat for senior officers in preparation for the implementation and operationalisation of the National Security Policy on Community Policing in the country.

Force spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, said the event is holding between November 16 and 19 in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

“The conference and retreat, which will have both virtual and physical components/sessions in compliance with the COVID-19 prevention regulations, will bring together and provide a unique opportunity for strategic managers of the force –senior police officers of the rank of CP and above as well as other heads of police formations and other carefully selected community policing experts across the globe – to engage in peer review and cross-fertilisation of ideas on effective implementation of the community-based Internal Security Management Strategy,” he explained.


Mba continued: “It would be recalled that the maiden edition of the Conference and Retreat for Senior Police Officers, tagged: “Repositioning the Force for the Challenges of Effective Policing in the 21st Century” and sponsored by the Lagos State Government with support from other stakeholders in October 2019, focused on new policing approaches, guidelines and tools towards effectively addressing prevailing and emerging crimes in the country.

The Conference and Retreat is being organised by the Nigeria Police Force in conjunction with Matchmakers Consult International.”
