Recruitment of special constables begins this week –Ogun CP

The Commissioner of Police in Ogun State, Kenneth Ebrimson, has said  the  recruitment of special constables in the state will commence  this week.

Ebrimson said this on Wednesday after  the inauguration of the new state chairman of  the Police Community Relations Committee, Samson Popoola .

He added that the recruitment would commence after arrangements had been finalised at the area command, local government areas and the divisional levels.

He said, “Thereafter, we will now start with a pilot scheme of the recruitment of the constabulary who will now form the bulk of the community policing practitioners at the community level to assist the police in prevention, information and intelligence gathering and conflict resolution.

“The next level will now be the consolidation of the recruitment of the constabulary and sending them to a modicum training of the police operations which will translate to bringing them in as our partners.

“The idea is to give them a sense of belonging so that when recruited, they will be given the police uniform but the only difference will be the signal, the badge.”
