Sept 2nd, 2011 – How To Reform & Strengthen The Nigerian Police

ADVICE ON HOW TO REFORM AND STRENGTHEN THE NIGERIAN POLICE.
THIS IS A SPECIAL ADVICE FROM A NIGERIAN WHO HAS SPENT 21 YEARS IN EUROPE WHERE I HAVE GOTTEN LOTS OF EXPERIENCE ON SECURITY ISSUES.
MY NAME IS MR: CHRISTOPHER EHIS OMOKHUALE, A NIGERIAN FROM EDO STATE, LIVING IN BARCELONA.SPAIN. YOU CAN CHECK ME OUT ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER ON: CEOMOKHUALE.
PERSONALLY, I AND MANY OTHER NIGERIAN ARE PLANNING TO COME BACK HOME TO INVEST IN THE COUNTRY, THAT MEANS BRINGING ALL OUR KNOWLEDGE FOR DECADES OF LIVING IN THE WESTERN WORLD TO HELP IMPROVE THE ECONOMY AND PROVIDE JOBS, BUT MOST OF US ARE AFRAID OF THE INSECURITY IN THE COUNTRY DUE TO CORRUPTION ON THE PART OF THE GOVERNMENT , POLICE AND NOW BOKO HARAM.

IS IT NOT A SHAME THAT A WHOLE NIGERIAN POLICE SUPPORTED BY THE NIGERIAN ARMY THAT USE TO GO OUT AND ENFORCE REGIONAL PEACE IN WEST AFRICA CANNOT EVEN GUARANTEE PEACE IN OUR OWN HOMELAND, THE GOVERNMENT HAVE BEEN OPPRESSED BY SOME BANDITS IN THE NAME OF RELIGION AND THE POLICE ARE NOT EVEN ABLE TO HANDLE THEM.
I AM PERSONALLY HAPPY WITH THE RECENT INSPECTOR GENERALS ORDER THAT ALL POLICEMEN ON GENERAL DUTY SHOULD NOT SPEND MORE THAN 2 YEARS IN A LOCATION, ALL THE SAME, I WOULD LIKE TO PROVIDE SOME ADVICE ON HOW TO IMPROVE THE POLICE FORCE SO THEY COULD BE ONE OF THE RESPECTED POLICE IN THE WORLD.WHICH ENTAILS THAT ALL POLICEMEN SHOULD BE WELL EQUIPPED WITH MODERN EQUIPMENTS.

1: EVERY POLICEMAN SHOULD BE GIVEN A PERSONAL WALKIE TALKIE, HOW COME A POLICE MAN IS ON DUTY AND CANNOT REACH HIS HEADQUARTERS OR HIS SUBSTATION WHEN THERE ARISE AN EMERGENCY OR EVEN TO CALL FOR REINFORCEMENT.
2: ALL POLICE OFFICERS SHOULD BE MADE TO REGISTER IN PRIVATE , PUBLIC OR EVEN GOVERNMENT GYMNASIUM TO BUILD HIS MUSCLES. A WELL FIT POLICEMAN COMMANDS.
RESPECT ANYWHERE HE GOES, HIS PHISICAL APPEARANCE IS A DETERANT TO ANY CRIMINAL, BESIDES A NORMAL POLICEMAN SHOULD BE BATTLE READY , CAN YOU IMAGINE A MAN TRYING TO DEFY AN AMERICAN POLICE IN A HAND TO HAND COMBAT?

3: THEY SHOULD ALL BE GIVEN LIGHT BOOTS FOR RUNNING WHEN THE NEED BE.

4: EACH ONE OF THEM SHOULD BE GIVEN A GPS LOCATOR , SO THAT HIS CENTRAL STATION KNOWS HIS EXACT LOCATION WHILE HE IS ON DUTY, EVEN WITHOUT RADIO CALLING ON HIS WALKIE TALKIE, HE CAN PRESS A PANIC BOTTON, AND THE STATION SENDS REINFORCEMENT TO HIS AID QUICKLY.

5: THEY SHOULD WEAR INTERNAL BULLET PROOFS, NOT THIS OPEN ONE THEY ARE WEARING, IMAGINE IF A CRIMINAL WANTS TO SHOOT AT THEM , HE WOULD AIM FOR THE HEAD AS THE BULLET PROOF IS VISIBLE, BUT WHEN IT IS INVISIBLE, THE BEST BET IS THAT THE CULPRIT WILL AIM FOR THE CHEST.

6: THEY SHOULD TAKE MARTIAL ART CLASSES AFTER WORK DAILY.

7: THEY SHOULD CARRY LIGHT AUTOMATIC RUSSIAN MACHINE GUNS..KALASHNIKOV..WHICH A KID OF 6 YEARS CAN CARRY AND MANAGE WITHOUT PROBLEM.

8: APART FROM THAT , THEY SHOULD ALL BE GIVEN WAIST PISTOLS FOR QUICK ACTION LIKE ALL POLICEMEN IN THE WORLD.

9: THERE SHOULD BE POLICEMEN ON BICYCLE PATROL.
10: POLICEMEN ON MOTOR CYCLE PATROL.
11: POLICEMEN ON FOOT PATROL THAT ARE MORE IN TOUCH WITH THE COMMUNITY FOR INFORMATION ON ANY CRIMINAL AROUND THE AREA.

12:POLICEMEN ON HORSE BACK THAT WILL PATROL THE CITIES AND VILLAGES, THESE HORSES ARE GOOD FOR ROUGH TORRAINS AND CAN EVEN REACH AREAS WHERE CARS AND MOTOR CYCLES CANNOT REACH.

13: POLICEMEN ON SMALL CAR PATROLS, NOT THESE PICK UP VANS, THESE ARE OUTDATED VEHICLES FOR SECURITY, THE GOVERNMENT BUYS LOTS OF OFFICIAL CARS DAILY FOR PUBLIC USE, BUT FORGETTING THAT THOSE CARS CAN SERVE AS POLICE CARS. IN EUROPE, POLICE CARS ARE NORMAL CARS, NOTHING LIKE PICK UPS.

14:THERE SHOULD BE MASS RECRUITMENT OF VOLUNTEER CITIZENS THAT WOULD SERVE AS EYES AND EARS TO THE POLICE AND GOVERNMENT. THIS HAS BEEN IN PRACTISE FOR MANY YEARS IN THE WESTERN WORLD.

15: MOST OF ALL, ZOOM SECURITY CAMERAS SHOULD BE INSTALLED ALL OVER THE NIGERIAN STREETS THAT ARE CONNECTED TO THE POLICE AND OTHER SECURITY AGENCIES IN NIGERIA.
