The IGP disclosed this during the United Nations Chiefs of Police Summit (UNCOPS) in the United States of America and during his meeting with Mr. Todd D. Robinson, Assistant Secretary, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, U.S. Department of State as part of events rounding up his attendance at the UN summit.
A statement by Force PRO, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi said, “During the meeting, discussions centered around enhancing support for the NPF training and capacity building programmes particularly the training of tactical units deployed in the North East and other conflict theatres across the country.
“Similarly discussed is the achievement of cascading the ongoing election security management training across the six geo-political zones in preparation for the 2023 general elections and support for police recruit training in modern policing themes such as forensic investigations, human relations and cyber security.
“The Assistant Secretary praised the good work and the feats recorded by the NPF under the amiable leadership of the IGP, even as both leaders discussed other ways of increasing support to the NPF.
