Police take delivery of 30 new patrol vans in A’Ibom
Akwa Ibom State Police Command has taken delivery of 30 new utility patrol vehicles donated by Governor Udom Emmanuel to combat crime.
The vehicles are the first batch of 100 patrol vans the governor pledged to the security agencies in the state.
Governor Emmanuel, who commiserated with officers and men of the command who lost their lives during the #EndSARS protests, urged them not to relent in ensuring that they effectively check criminality in the state.
“Recent reports of gradual reduction of crime in the state is heart-warming and I believe it is as a result of the Command’s hard work,” he said.
He promised to continue to invest in security and partner with the Command to ensure safety of life and property in Akwa Ibom State.
“My donation of the new patrol vans is to support the police and other security agencies to enhance their performance and smooth yuletide for all residents of the state.”
“I, therefore, on behalf of Akwa Ibom people appreciate your untiring effort in curbing criminality in the state,” he added.
Receiving the patrol vans, the Commissioner of Police (CP) , Andrew Amiengheme, commended the governor for the gesture, adding that the action would boast the morale of officers of the force.
He assured the governor of safety of residents through constant patrol during the yuletide and beyond, stressing that the rate of crime would be drastically reduced in the state.
“Let me assure the governor that the Command under my watch will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that those perpetrating crime in the state are brought to justice.
“We are determined to confront violent crime headlong, end senseless killings, especially those perpetrated by cults, arm robbery and rape among our youths,” he added.
