NPTF trains 100 policemen in crime management
The Nigeria Police Trust Fund and Ibzain Integrated Services Limited have partnered and begun training 100 police personnel in divisional crime management in Yobe.
A 7-day capacity building workshop commenced in Damaturu, on Wednesday, where NPTF Deputy Director, Training, Welfare, and Institution Development, Mr Jamilu Ja’afaru, announced that 100 policemen would be trained in crime management.
He stated that the workshop was part of the NPTF’s efforts to train and retrain men, officers, and auxiliary personnel of the Nigeria Police Force for maximum productivity.
He said, “This training we are conducting here in Yobe on divisional crime management is held in 31 states of the federation under the 2022 Police Training Intervention Fund.”
He added that about 10,000 police personnel across the country are beneficiaries of the intervention, which started last year and has provided various trainings.
Ja’afaru said that in addition to personnel training, the Fund had also assisted with police accommodation in barracks, police stations, and the procurement of gadgets and equipment.
Ja’afaru guaranteed that all police personnel would receive NPTF training and urged participants to use the knowledge gained to improve their abilities.
He emphasised that the repositioning of the Nigerian Police Force is critical for ensuring the safety of all citizens in the country and that the NPTF is committed to achieving this goal.
Afterwards, Ahmed Garba, Yobe’s Commissioner of Police, stated that personnel welfare would be a top priority during his tenure.
The CP, represented by ACP Abdulsalam AbdulRazaq, urged participants to attend the training on time and pay close attention to the content in order to gain maximum benefit.
