The recruitment training for the 2020/2021 phase of the Nigeria Police Recruitment exercise will commence on 10th January 2022 and it will hold in the four premier police colleges in Lagos, Kaduna, Maiduguri and Orji River as well as in twelve other police training institutions across the country.
Inspector General of Police Usman Alkali Baba revealed this during the meeting with commandants of Nigeria Police Colleges at the Force Headquarters Abuja at the weekend.
“As we proceed to the next phase, which is the training of the successful candidates, it is my expectation that all of you as strategic Heads of the Training Institutions will facilitate the process of the transition of the recruits from ‘civilianship’ to wellgroomed police personnel that will see themselves as incorruptible, civil, and true security servants of the citizens with the right orientation as protectors of the right of all Nigerians”
“Considering the challenge of insecurity currently plunging Nigeria, the indispensablity of trained police personel, with respect to combating crime and criminality in the country, cannot be over emphasised.”
IGP Alkali stipulated that the objectives of human resources of training must be clearly spelt out to enable those undergoing the six months training make the most of it, but the responsibility hugely rests on the commandants.
” Accordingly, as custodians and guidance of the recruits, you are to provide mentorship by displaying high level of ethical standards. This is important because students learn more, although subconsciously, from watching and imbibing the characters and attitudes of their teachers and instructors.
“It is for this reason that it is important to drum it up that you must practice what you would be preaching to the recruits”
The police chief also revealed that adequate provisions have been made by the Federal Government for the welfare of the recruits and the staff of the training colleges.
