‘Police transfer for better service delivery’

By Michael Ofulue
The Ondo State Police Command  has  described the ongoing general transfer of men of the Nigeria Police Force across the nation which affected some of its men as routine exercise targeted at better service delivery.

The Hope Metro learnt that no fewer than 20 officers and men of the command have been transferred out of the  state in the last one week.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Femi Joseph, who confirmed the development to The Hope Metro described the exercise as a normal thing meant to  bring better performance, especially in the areas of crime prevention, detection and control in the society.

He explained that the ongoing transfers are not limited to Ondo State Police command, but said that it is a general overhauling of policemen across all the police commands and formations . He stated that  the whole essence is to effectively tackle various crimes and criminality happening at the moment.

His words” Yes, the ongoing transfer in the force is a routine business and it’s not targeted at any state command.

“Some of our men are on  transfer and their replacements have also arrived to assume their respective duty posts.The exercise is a continuous one and it is to enhance better performances among officers and men.

“This transfer could also be liken to the fact that some of them affected in the exercise have spent above  five years in a particular state and there is need for them to have a taste of another state as police duty is the same every where, “he stated.
