The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali, will be hosting a two-day conference and retreat for senior police officers comprising Deputy Inspectors General of Police (DIGs), Assistant Inspectors General of Police (AIGs), Commissioners of Police and other Heads of Police Formations.
The conference, which holds on February 7 and 8, 2022, is with the support of the governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel, in the capital city, Uyo.
According to the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, a Commissioner of Police, the Conference and Retreat, themed ‘The New Police Vision: A Roadmap for Stabilizing Internal Security in Nigeria,’ “is part of efforts by the current police leadership to collaborate with critical stakeholders in driving a policing vision that will among other benefits, avail police strategic managers with contemporary and vantage opportunities to effectively deliver on their mandates.
“It will also afford the police leadership the opportunity to identify and set measurable crime fighting agenda for the Force in the year 2022.”
CP Mba said that the IGP noted that the Conference and Retreat would equally provide a unique opportunity for the strategic managers of the Force and carefully selected public safety experts to engage in peer review and cross fertilization of ideas for improved internal security management in the country.
“This is in addition to providing new traction for driving the new NPF policy aimed at modernization, re-orientation and re-tooling of the Force,” he added.
Assuring the nation of concerted efforts at improving police service delivery, public safety and crime management in the year 2022 and beyond, the IGP expressed the belief that the retreat would help to evolve new pathways to tackling crimes and other law enforcement challenges in the country.
The FPRO stated further that the conference/retreat would be coordinated by Matchmakers Consult International, the approved facilitator of the event.
