The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba has ordered the immediate distribution of Police Uniforms, Kits and accoutrements which the Force recently procured, to various Zones, Commands and Formations in the Force for onward issuance to personnel.
A Statement by the force indicates that the resuscitation of the quarterly issuance of uniforms and other accoutrements to Officers and men of the force is in furtherance of the ongoing efforts by the IGP to engender reforms and evolve a new people-friendly Police Force.
The issuance of the new uniforms and accoutrements, which is a continuous exercise, is free of charge as provisions have been made for the continuous procurement in the Police budget.
The IGP therefore charged Police personnel to imbibe the habit of proper and clean turn-out in order to uphold the sanctity and professionalism in the force as efforts are being made continually to improve on the condition of service of all personnel of the force across board.
In the meantime, the IGP has approved the creation of First Aid Unit to be domiciled under the Nigeria Police Medical Service at the Force Headquarters and the inclusion of advanced First Aid Training to substitute the basic training available in the Nigeria Police Force Training Curriculum.
