9,989 Police Constables of the 2020 batch of 10,000 Police Recruits passed out on Wednesday after due training to meet the challenges of policing a democratic and rule of the law-driven environment.

The Constables underwent six months of intensive and rigorous training in basic, intermediate, and advanced Police studies in four Police Colleges and 12 Training Colleges nationwide.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc(+), NPM, fdc, noted that 11 recruits from the batch could not meet up with standards set for exercise in the course of the training, hence they could not pass out as Constables.

In a statement issued on Wednesday by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the IGP admonished the Constables on discipline and professionalism as they would be posted to their respective Local Government Areas for Police duties.

“The IGP said the recruitment and training represent another huge step in the drive by the Federal Government to change the narratives of Policing by addressing the age-long manpower gap that has been inhibiting optimal Police service delivery in this country. The manpower drive equally aims to meet and possibly surpass the United Nations (UN) recommendation of one Policeman to 400 people.

“The IGP appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Chairman Nigeria Police Council, for the approval of recruiting 10,000 Police Constables into the Force yearly, and his determination to restore the lost police primacy by bequeathing to our beloved country a reformed and well-positioned Police Force with renewed capacity and commitment to attain its internal security mandate.

“The IGP similarly lauded the Honourable Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Mohammed Maigari Dingyadi, as well as the Chairman and Commissioners of the Police Service Commission for the strong support and synergy which has aided in ensuring that the recruitment exercise is undertaken most transparently and efficiently.

“The IGP sounded a note of warning to the newly passed out Police Constables, who will be posted to their respective Local Government Areas for police duties, that the bedrock of policing is discipline, emphasizing that their success as Police Officers is entirely dependent on the quality of their character, discipline, and professionalism. Therefore, he admonished them to resolve not to engage in any activity that will be unedifying to their good name, that of their families, and indeed the Force as they commence their policing career today.”
