UNDP, Others Train Police Officers On International Best Practices

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), German government and CLEEN Foundation have trained Nigeria Police Force personnel on attitude change and international best practices for police officers.

Speaking at the event, UNDP ‘s senior police training advisor, Adewale Ajadi, said: “Our goal is to train police officers who will train other police officers on the latest laws and use and approach that is conducive for adult education so that the Nigeria Police can be a police force of the 21st century that Nigerians are looking for. This time around, 120 personnel were trained and they will go back to train others.”

On how satisfied he is as a facilitator, Ajadi said he believed everyone that was trained was leaving with a seed planted in them.

“It is now up to them and their commands to nurture the lessons they have learned today. The goal is also to help them nurture the seed planted.

“The last time we did it, about 500 personnel were trained and we did an impact assessment on them which showed they were good enough. They trained the recruits and many recruits were trained in the manner expected of them. We are hopeful for this group as long as they have the time and space to apply these skills, they will do what we are expecting them to do.”

Also speaking, Ekweonu Henry of CLEEN Foundation said this was the third batch for the second phase and over 620 officers were trained from the training colleges.

He said the aim of the programme was to train police officers on best international practices on the Police Act and other relevant laws in the country that guide daily activities.

The officers trained are expected to train the recruits.

The acting inspector-general of police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun had directed the development of comprehensive training programmes and curriculum with emphasis on attitudinal, behavioural changes of policemen.

The IGP expressed his commitment to enhancing professionalism, effectiveness and public trust in law enforcement personnel.

Force PRO, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, had also said; “In line with this commitment, the IGP has set in motion machineries for the development of a comprehensive training programme and curriculum for colleges and training schools that will place increased emphasis on attitudinal and behavioural changes, alongside physical and technical fitness.

“The IGP acknowledges that law enforcement is a multifaceted profession that requires not only physical strength and technical proficiency but also mental alertness and the highest standards of ethical conduct, empathy, and effective communication.”
