In a bid to enhance communication and combat crime in the country, the Nigeria Police Force has inaugurated a radio broadcasting service that will commence full operations in 2018, Edirin Wesley reveals.
Edirin, who is the Chairman of the Nigeria Police Force Broadcasting Service, explained in a statement released to the press that the radio station would provide general security information on air, land and sea.
Furthermore, he explained that packages on crime reportage and emergency response such as NPBS Radio and Television, as well as online, and a Control Command Center would be aired for effective policing and management of emergency situations.
Through the service, according to Edirin Wesley, Nigerians can confidently report criminal issues in MDAs to the Police without fear.
Recently, the Nigeria Police Force has been a subject of criticism over allegations of abuse of power, extortion and torture from members of the public. A nationwide protest against a unit of the force, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), forced the IGP to order a reform and arrest of erring officers.
