Police to curb crime through community policing

Police to curb crime through community policing

From Michael Ofulue
Determined to nip in the bud, criminal activities in Ondo State, the state Police Command said adequate arrangement is ongoing towards the full implementation of community policing.

It would be recalled that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Muhammed Adamu,  during his one-day official visit to the state, declared that community policing has been identified as a method of solving crime-related issues happening in the country.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Femi Joseph, who spoke with The Hope Metro hinted that police high command is working in collaboration with the Presidency to work out modalities for its implementation.

According to him, as soon as the arrangement is concluded, the  command would ensure that host communities, traditional rulers and other major stakeholders would be brought together to partner with the police.

He was of the opinion that violent crimes such as armed banditry, cultism, rape murder, and kidnapping would be a thing of the past as soon as  community policing takes. He said the whole essence is targeted at guaranteeing the safety of all and sundry.

The PPRO patrol and surveillance across the state would continue until people of questionable characters are brought to book.

He called on the general public to always make use of police distress numbers at the time of trouble, adding that the response team squad will immediately come to their rescue.

Joseph, however, said the command is working collaboratively with other security agencies to ensure that all identified flash points across the state are properly policed.
