Psychiatric Test To Be Conducted On Serving Policemen, Recruits – IGP by dre11(m): 8:01pm On Jan 12, 2016
The Inspector-General of Police (I-G), Mr Solomon Arase, has said that the Nigeria Police Force is considering conducting psychiatric test on recruits and serving officers. Arase stated this at the Nigeria Police Force Health Policy Revalidation meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said that the initiative became necessary following incidents of indiscriminate use of firearms by personnel of the force.

The I-G said that inadequate manpower had exposed officers to working for longer hours. He said that the force was also considering establishing a Trauma Centre for its officers because of the nature of their job. “The Police should be concerned about the mental health of officers,“he said. It would be recalled that Arase had advised Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) to always determine the mental awareness of officers before assigning firearms to them to curtail incidents of ‘accidental discharge`.

He said that inadequate health workers, poor funding, infrastructure deficit and management deficiencies had been some of the challenges inhibiting the force’s medical unit. Arase noted that in order to tackle these challenges, it was expedient to develop a health policy for the force. “The development of any policy document entails an inclusive approach with relevant stakeholders.

“You all have been invited here today to review the Draft Health Policy for the Nigeria Police Force,“he said. On his part, the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, promised the ministry’s assistance in the implementation of the policy. “We will assist in the implementation, we will ensure it happens,“Adewole said. He commended the police management for developing a health policy for its officers and their families.

In a remark, Dr Abdulmumini Ibrahim, Registrar, Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN), said that the policy was long overdue. He said that the council would help the police to build the capacity to handle the facility. The Nigeria Police Medical Service was established in 1975 with the primary mandate of providing health care services to serving, retired, family members of the force and detainees.

They would all pass! Where the madness come from is the gun they carry about. Most have never even had the opportunity to squeeze the trigger before and they would cherish every bit of opportunity to do so. The IG alonside the FG should start considering the use of tazers. Our policemen should not be allowed to move with guns!

If not for democracy and rule of law i would have support corrupt politicians being shot at close range without prosecutions.

Its annoying the way our politicians behaves but we can't afford to create anarchy hence the need to ensure proper trials. I hope prosecutors will do good jobs so that those guilty as charged will pay for their crimes.

Junior Police officers don't need psychiatric tests, it is the management of Nigerian police that need it. Last December, my friend received his December salary on 5 January. He almost ran mad when they didn't pay his salary on time for him to buy his children's clothes, send money to Nissan aged parents at home. Apart from poor salary, what happen to policeman who dies in active service?

You ain't far from the truth. Mismanagement, lack of infrastructures and poor remuneration are part of the reasons for their crazy behaviours.

In my opinion,



ALL NIGERIAN POLICE MEN ARE MENTALLY INCAPABLE AND UNFIT AT BEING POLICE OFFICERS

The society, conditions of service, lack of rewards and sanctions, nepotism, and the fact that it is the last option for those who have failed at everything else are all root and contributory causes to their psychological disorders.

They exhibit them all, from inferiority complex, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, insomnia, split personality disorder, bipolar disorder, delirium, guilt, they are serial killers, serial rapists, they suffer also from obsessive compulsive behaviors, outright insanity, they are abusers of substances including drugs and alcohol, they are habitual gamblers etc etc etc....

I would have loved to be a Police Officer but maybe in my next life when I come from the US, UK or Canada.. grin.
Or until Nigerian Police gets better in this my life time.

If I'm being robbed, I would want the responding officers to arrive with varying levels of non to extremely lethal weapons.

The gun is never the problem, it's the nut behind the finger.

Do we have lunatics in the police force only?
Psychiatric tests should be mandatory for any Nigerian going into any form of public service and it should be recommended for private establishments also.

80% of adult Nigerian's are crazy and the other 20% think they are crazy.

Every Nigerian living in Nigeria should undergo one. Years of mental torture has affected the way many think and approach situations. Just check out the comments on all topics on NL alone and you'll understand what i mean.

Aswear! they really need it!

how can a police man be standing in a middle of an express way trying to collect #20??

how can a police be asking you silly questions like "do you know who I am?" — Yes, I think you are broke!

how can a police appear dirty in uniform!

and lastly, how can't a police love his job he applied for?

And worst of all, majority of them can't control a crazy situation without acting crazy or threatening to shoot you!!
