The Niger Police Command will introduce Geographical Area Policing as part of its efforts to combat crime, the new Commissioner of Police, Mr Olusola Amore, has said.
Amore made the statement on Thursday in Minna while briefing newsmen on his plan to combat crime in the state.
He explained that the system would involve the deployment of officers and men on the streets and other areas not covered in the normal patrol.
He said the command would make available communication lines to report the achievements and challenges facing police in the state.
The commissioner pledged that the command would promote the agenda of the acting Inspector-General of Police on community policing.
He said, “The people of Niger state will see a new change in the handling of crime and criminality.
“The policy of community policing is an agenda to be pursued vigorously. My slogan is Together We Can. Together we can make a crime free society.
“The number of each Area Commander and Divisional Police Officer will be given to the public.
“My number and those of others at the headquarters are available so that the people can contact us directly.
“We need feedback from all stakeholders.”
Amore said the command would collaborate with community vigilance groups and private security outfits to fight crime in the state.
He added that the command would also work with the media in the state to enhance communication channels.
