The IGP’s new policing vision includes:
- Deploying cutting-edge policing technology;
- Integrating intelligence-led policing practices to core policing functions, with a view to strengthening police capacity to stabilise the internal security order; and
- Restoring public confidence in the Force.
The IGP added that the aim of the new policies was to give full effect to the concept of community policing and deliver quality police service based on accountability and conformity to the rule of law.
He also revealed that he had ordered the immediate reforms of the IGP monitoring unit and disbandment of satellite offices, in a bid to reorganize Force units to operate only in the context of their original mandates.
