Police partner with drug focus NGOs to tackle organised crimes
The Nigeria Police Force under the leadership of Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has partnered with The Drug Salvation Foundation (TDSF) on a sensitization drive focused on Drugs and Drug Prevention, Treatment, and Care (DPTC) with a 5-day train-the-trainers workshop held at the Police Force Headquarters, Louis Edet House, Abuja between Monday 1st and Friday 5th August 2022.
The workshop which was organized with support from the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), was the first part of a series, that will not only expose Police Officers to an effective response to drugs and organized crime but strengthen police capacity and highlight road maps for effective reforms.
The train-the-trainers workshop which was declared open on 1st August 2022 at Peacekeeping Hall, Force Headquarters, Abuja, will cascade down to all Police Commands across the six geo-political zones of the country through Police Training Institutions. The training participants comprised thirty (30) Police Officers drawn from different Departments, Zones, Commands and Formations of the Force.
The IGP has therefore reiterated his commitment to training and human capacity development to sustain the collective fight to curb drug misuse which has formed the major stimulant for springing up of various dimensions of crimes and criminality in our society. The IGP equally appreciated the training partners for the reform efforts geared at bestowing the nation with a modernized, citizen-led, rule of law-guided, and professional Police Force.
