Imo State Government Inaugurates Community Policing Advisory Committee.

The Imo state government led by His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma have inaugurated the Imo State Community Policing/Advisory Committee at the Mbakwe Exco Chambers, Government House, Owerri

The members were charged to ensure that they work hard to fish out criminals in Imo communities and villages.
Federal Government, through the Presidency, has approved the formation and inauguration of similar formations all over the country.  The sole aim is to ensure peaceful co-existence of indigenes and non-indigenes, ethnic groups and tribes in our communities all over the federation.
The Committee is not an alternative to Nigerian Security Agencies like the Police or the Army, rather the outfit will partner with them to ensure that our communities are properly secured, hence making their security job seamless and easy.
The Committee is to work to ensure that we live together in love and in peace and to smoke out all criminals, reduce acrimonies among Nigerians in our domain and ensure peaceful co-existence. They should work hard to identify all social vices and deal with them according to the law.
The state government urge the Commissioner of Police, Imo State, to work out modalities towards the creation of the zonal, local government and community prototype of the Committee. 

The governor promised to give all necessary assistance that will enable them succeed.
