In order to enhance people oriented policing and effective service delivery in Anambra State, the Commissioner of Police, Mustapha Dandaura, summoned all officers and men attached to Safer/Federal Highway Patrols in the Command and addressed them at the State Command headquarters Awka.
The CP while addressing the officers urged them to be more professional, proactive, firm but civil to members of the public when discharging their duties in accordance with internationally acceptable best practices.
The police boss also warned them against any form of extortion and corrupt practices stating that any officer found wanting will face severe disciplinary action which may include outright dismissal from the force.
CP Dandaura also directed that the patrol teams be deployed to Onitsha for special operations in order to rid the area of armed banditry such as One chance and hand bag snatching syndicates particularly at the head bridge and Upper Iweka axis in Onitsha.
He equally solicited for the co-operation and support of members of the public especially as it concerns providing useful information to the police to help ward off criminal elements as well as guarantee safer and better society for all and sundry.
