IGP Empowers Complaint Response Units As Heads Receive Specialized Training


In response to public concerns and in line with the commitment to enhance the professionalism and responsiveness of the Nigerian Police Force, Inspector-General of Police Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun orchestrated a significant initiative. The establishment of Complaint Response Units (CRU) across all Police state commands, as mandated by the Nigeria Police Act, 2020, was followed by a comprehensive 2-day workshop for the heads of these units.

The appointed heads of CRUs from various states convened at the Peacekeeping Hall, 5th floor, Force Headquarters, Abuja, on February 21, 2024, for an induction ceremony and the commencement of the workshop. Representing IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, Force Public Relations Officer ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi charged the officers to uphold justice and integrity in the execution of their duties. The IGP’s commitment to safeguarding fundamental human rights and promoting the core values of the force was reiterated during the ceremony.

Notably, the induction ceremony and workshop were attended by distinguished guests, including a representative from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and retired AIG Austine Iwah, a UN certified resource person.

In his address, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi conveyed the promise of ongoing training and workshop programs for the CRU heads. This commitment aims to equip them adequately for their new responsibilities and align with the vision statement of the new police leadership, ultimately fostering improved service delivery.

This initiative signifies a pivotal step towards a more professional, service-driven, rule of law compliant, and people-friendly Nigerian Police Force.
