Community Policing: Buhari approves decentralization of Force Criminal Investigations & Intelligence Department

*Create 5 new Zonal Commands

Towards the enhancement of the community policing strategies of the Nigerian Police Force, working in tandem with States Government’s in the country, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the reorganization of the Force Criminal Investigations Department by separating the Force Intelligence Bureau out of it and making it a department of its own with a Deputy Inspector General of Police as the head.

The President also approved the creation of five new zonal commands of the Nigeria Police Force, thereby increasing the Commands to 17 across the country.

The newly created commands are Ondo/Ekiti command with headquarters at Akure, Ondo State; Enugu/Anambra/Ebonyi Command with headquarters in Ukpo-Dunukofia in Anambra State, Bayelsa/Rivers command with headquarters in Yenogoa, Bayelsa State; Katsina,/Kaduna command with headquarters in Katsina; and Yobe/Borno command with headquarters in Maiduguri, Borno State.

Under the newly approved command structure, the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB) is formally excised from the FCID to become a full-fledged department to be headed by a Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG)

A signal by the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, said the new structure is expected to fully integrate intelligence-led policing strategy and community policing.

As chairman of the Nigerian Police Council, President Buhari also approved the decentralization of the FCID in line with the principle of community policing.

Additionally, two additional annex offices of the department are to be established in Enugu to take care of investigations of major crimes emanating from the South-east and South-south geo-political zones, and in Gombe State to take care of investigations from the North-east geo-political zone.

The IGP added that the new annex offices are to join the existing annex offices in Lagos and Kaduna, while the FCID annex offices in Lagos, Kaduna, Enugu and Gombe states would be headed by Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs) who are to report to the DIGs in charge of the FCID, at the Force Headquarters Abuja.

Furthermore, the President approved a new structure for the four police colleges in the country located in Kaduna, Ikeja, Maiduguri and Orji-River, which is geared towards training and capacity development of the junior cadre of the force.

The president approved that the status of the commandants of the colleges be upgraded to the rank of Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG). This will strengthen administration, enhance the commitment of staff and engender higher level of discipline and the quality of training at the colleges.

Let every police main serve in their state ...the federal government can still control the police but let people police themselves

What doses Musa that grew up in Kano know about policing Lagos ...u must have spent at least 10 years in the state u are to serve as a police officer

This simple act would improve the efficiency of the police

But because they have put their brothers at the disadvantage of other states they won't agree

Any re-organization that doesn't involve the complete dismantling of SARS and AK squads is rubbish.

The police force needs overhauling.

We are training youths on solar panel production and installation.

If you want to learn or volunteer to teach please drop your WhatsApp number, location and area of interest.

God bless Nigeria.

shocked












Police is cursed.

There is nothing to reorganise about police cos nothing gud will ever come from them.
In as much as police wears black uniform and have pockets on their uniform they will never change

Just scrape police nd giv each citizen especially graduates AK47 to protect themselves and covert NYSC to pure military training just like Isreal is doing

Nigeria needs to divide!

All these gibberish do not change anything. It's simply more money to the pockets of the elite people in those places. Imagine a DPR worker collecting N6.3m per month while NYSC members receive paltry N33K. So imagine what these people pay themselves while the rest of us make do with cane sugar.

Re- organise ,the whole security architecture,people are dying every day as a result of insecurity,There is disorder in the present scheme of things,we need to look beyond personal ambition and political sentiments in doing things ,Mr President should understand that History might not be kind to him if he does not set this nation on the right Track (He had more than ,1 opportunity ) ,He was once military head of state ,now he is a civilian President only OBJ had that opportunity .It's not about pdp or apc it's about our national destiny..it is sad that our founding father never knew things would get to this level

If this man can successfully restructure Nigeria he will forever be known and remembered even his image will get a huge boost. But it feels like he his surrounded by idiots who are only interested in protecting their jobs rather than telling him the truth.

Which Buhari?
Some people are committing open treason and everyone is quiet?
Una well done

Your president is medically unfit for office and some people are using his name to borrow money and appoint people and everyone is going on as if it’s ok.
A time of payment is coming, for allowing this to happen.
You all should get ready!
