Nigerian policing needs to begin evolving

Police need to change in order to restore public perspective and trust.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on a policing workshop in Lagos.

Nigerian police officers are in dire need of better training and resources. The current system is rife with corruption and abuse, which has led to a decline in public trust. Nigerian citizens are often reluctant to report crime, due to fear of retaliation from the police. This is a vicious cycle that must be broken in order for the country to move forward. Nigerian police officers need to be better trained in order to effectively protect and serve the public. They also need to be provided with better resources, so that they can do their jobs properly. The current system is clearly not working, and something needs to be done to change it. Nigerian citizens deserve to feel safe, and the police need to be held accountable for their actions.

Nigeria police really need to evolve like why would our police be fat and not fitted for the jobs they are given to protect human life

In fact, they really need to be retrained, their mode of operations is odd.

This is a good move, but are they going to abide by it in the long run?

This is Nigeria, they can finish the training and still be doing things the old ways, a rules need to be set in order to keep them in control

These our police people need co plate deformation because most don’t even know the law at all; why will you stop someone and be going through their phone? It isn’t right at all, there are so many wrongdoings that these policemen commit, and they deserve to be punished for them.

They need to gather them together and show them how foreign countries operate in their police departments and try to emulate them.

When we see police officers in this country, they look like thieves because of the attributes they possess, like red eyes, and they are always angry.

People in Nigeria have lost trust in the police because they are inherently crooked. The Nigerian police need to improve their practices because the way they are going is terrible

It’s only in Nigeria that people will be scared of reporting cases to the police because of the extortion that they’ll face at the station. This is awful.

The government needs to do another orientation for these policemen because corruption has eaten deep into a lot of them.

You really can’t understand what their difficulties are; the structures have been so watered down; there is a great deal of work that needs to be done to get policing in the correct position. The Nigerian police force needs a complete restructuring.

The current officers that are employed are not even physically for enough to protect anyone from Danger; some of them are fat with large tummies, lol

The police need to be retrained afresh considering their poor records toward the security of this country.
The Nigeria police need to be reshuffled because citizens no longer have trust in them anymore. They need to re-strategize and come up with plans to convince the people they are worthy of securing their lives. for example, concerning bribery and corruption they need to include fines and penalties for those caught in illegal or shameful acts, it will serve as example to other and they won’t be able to bend rules. Also, they need reinforcement so they can carry out their jobs as expected…

We encounter so many issues regarding these policemen, from lack of modern equipment to lack of resources; the government should equip them with current resources so they’ll carry out their jobs efficiently.

Our policemen needs to be provided with more funds and salaries so that they won’t be tempted to receive bribes

The acts of corruption and negligence common among the polices needs to be eradicate to make people feel safe. The whole police department needs to be fully restructure to gain people’s trust and corporation.

I welcome this idea. The Nigeria police force needs to be reformed. Kme things need to change. That have to evolve in their strategy and security consciousness and apparatus. With this in place, it will help to boost our security against crime and criminality in the country.

The problem we are confronted with as regards to police evolving in Nigeria is beyond the police.Change the system of government and let the judgement on corruption be tougher. Pamper no president or any government officials and see if there will not be changes.

Nigeria police are totally corrupted which is why people loose trust in them and fear to report crime to them as they will end up freeing the criminal after obtaining bribe from them and this has make some people to take law into there hands atimes which in turn increase criminal and violence acts, Nigeria police needs to do better.

The police need better training and good resources to perform their duty and also they need to change their way people don’t respect them again because of this their corrupt and bribe stuff they are doing, they are not respect talkless of report crime to them, if they respect their self people will respect them and fear them and people will do their duties as a citizen and report crime and so on. They need to restructure their system and adopt punishment rule for those caught in illegal or shameful act it will serve as example to other and they won’t be able to bend rules.

Totally true! The Nigerian police reeks of disgust. They commit more crimes than alleged criminals. Hopefully there’d be a genuine revamp this time. The revamp has all been a lie so far. No doubt, they need funding too. All those rusted relatively impotent ammunition should be changed. An upgraded arsenal to match or compete with potential criminal’s.
