IGP tasks security aides to new govs, others on professionalism
Inspector General of Police (IGP), Alkali Baba Usman, has charged chief security officers (CSOs), aides-de camp (ADCs) and orderlies to newly elected governors and top government functionaries on professionalism and commitment to force’s ethos.
Consequently, the police conducted a three-day induction course in Abuja for security details of public office holders and Very Important Persons (VIPs) on how best to discharge their duties professionally and responsibly.
Force spokesman, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, said: “The induction course catered to 53 CSOs and ADCs, as well as 18 orderlies. The training similarly covered the Rules of Engagement and Standard Operational Procedures to apply in various simulated situations, as well as specific policies and etiquettes for strict adherence.
“Seasoned officers with wealth of experiential knowledge, led by the IGP, Usman Alkali Baba, were on ground to coordinate the course.
The IGP emphasised the role of professionalism and commitment in effectively carrying out these specialised policing services, and charged the officers and men to continuously develop themselves for efficiency.”
