SWAT: Six Things To Know About New Police Unit by dre11(m): 9:24pm On Oct 13
The Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu has created a new unit known as Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team which will fill the gaps arising from the dissolution of the defunct SARS.

Last Sunday, he disbanded the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) due to alleged extra-judicial killings, wanton arrests and dispossession of property through physical assault and other intimidation tactics.

Here are six things you need to know about the new unit:

1. Prospective members of this new team will undergo psychological and medical examination to ascertain their fitness and eligibility for the new assignment.

2. These members are to commence training at the different Police tactical training institutions nationwide, next week.

3. The training schedules are as follows;

A. Police Commands in the South-East and the South-South will be trained at the Counter-Terrorism College, Nonwa-Tai, Rivers State

B. Police Commands from the North will be trained at the Police Mobile Force Training College, Ende, Nasarawa State

C. Police Commands from the South-West will be trained at the Police Mobile Force Training College, Ila-Orangun, Osun State

4. The IGP ordered all operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) to report at the Force Headquarters, Abuja for debriefing, psychological and medical examination.

5. The medical examination will be carried out by the newly set-up Police Counselling and Support Unit (PCSU), a unit, which henceforth shall engage in psychological management, re-orientation and training of officers of the Force deployed for tactical operations and other duties.

6. The Police Counselling and Support Unit will consist of psychiatrists, psychologists, medics, pastors and imams, Public Relations practitioners, Civil Society and other Human Rights groups with relevant qualifications and expertise

tell these new unit not to cross the line of assignment- Anti-Robberies. nothing concern SARS or SWAT with chasing Yahoo boys upandan thereby killing them unjustly or searching of phones of random individuals for extortion. do y'all know why Endsars protests isn't serious in the North? Those SARS police over there don't do the nonsense They are doing down south here.

chasing of Yahoo boys na work of efcc otherwise Nigerians will signal again for social media to rendezvous for another ride of protests.

Men, you took the words right out of my mouth... that's why I said we will soon be crying SWAT instead of SARS. Na the same same. We don't want special forces. Just establish factory for these thugs so they will have jobs without access to weapons.

We like acronyms sha. Why is it we like changing names for agencies, but still nothing works?
NEPA, NAPEP, FRC, FEPA, SARS, and even PHCN were renamed... nothing changed.

The only time police will calm down in this country is if citizens are authorized to bear arms.

Nice one
Pls end SARS before they end my business, despite all the reviews and recommendations Nairalanders posted on the thread on my signature, these people won't let someone be, always stopping and searching

Thanks guys for trusting me despite everything and to everyone judging me without knowing my story, I will just suggest u pls see the thread on my signature before believing rumours
