The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has established the National Institute for Police Studies.
As part of efforts geared toward bequeathing a highly skillful and professional Police Force to the nation, the Nigeria Police Force has established a National Institute for Police Studies in Wudil, Kano state.
A press statement by the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), DCP Frank Mba, Tuesday in Abuja, said, “The Institute, which is an affiliate of the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil Kano, is temporarily located within the Police Staff College, Jos and will provide police personnel, alongside other members of the national security community with needed skills and knowledge on safety and security.
“The Institution will work with academic partners, security agencies, international police organizations and the general public to, among other things, produce and commission original research on priority for policing and public safety; collate and share the best available evidence assessment, and also provides strategic man-power development for police and security officers of the rank of Deputy Commissioner of Police or its equivalent in other security agencies.”
He said Professor Olu Ogunsakin has been appointed as the Director of the Institute. An erudite Professor of Police Studies, Olu Ogunsakin holds a Ph.d in Police Studies from the University of Exeter, UK; MA in Criminal Justice, University of Detroit, Michigan, USA; PGC in Public Mediation, University of Toronto, Canada; BSc in Human Resource Development, University of Detroit, Michigan, USA.
“He was a Senior Adviser to the City of London Police and responsible for developing standardized operational protocols for over 10 years.
“He was also the lead consultant on security and policing to the Department of International Development, British Council, Nigeria. He is presently the Technical Adviser to the Inspector General of Police, Nigeria Police Force.”
Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, has congratulated the director of the Institute and has expressed strong belief that Ogunsakin would bring to bare his wealth of experience in the field of policing and security matters in the management of the Institute.
He said the IGP further noted that in addition to sharpening the skills of strategic police officers and senior officers from other security agencies, the Institute will help in finding solutions to emerging security challenges in the country.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
