CP to promote democratic policing in Bayelsa

IN a bid to effectively police the state and rid both upland and the riverine communities of crime and criminality, the Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police, Asuquo Amba, has said that democratic policing would be the guiding principle under his watch.
This, Amba said while briefing journalists in Yenagoa.
He pointed out that the prevailing crime in the state were, armed robbery, kidnapping, cultism, rape, chieftaincy tussles and community disputes; and that high powered consultation had begun with various stakeholders with a view to establish functional community policing geared to embrace members of the community for better results.
The State Police boss, averred that international standard and human right principles would be deplored in policing the state, distress calls would be responded to in order to restore public confidence in the force.
Amba emphasised that professionalism and compassion would be upheld in the discharge of his men’s duties, while the anti-robbery squad, x-squad and provost marshal department would be profiled and invigorated.
The Police boss posited that the command would improve on the achievements of his predecessor, such as arrest of armed robbers and recovery of firearms, arrest of suspects for unlawful possession of firearms at AIT Elebele road, arrest of kidnappers of 15 years old Anthonia Odoki amongst others.
He said useful information was given by the culprits to track other gang at large, while investigation was still ongoing.
Amba averred that in compliance with the Inspector General of Police stands, intelligent gathering would be given priority, as well as training and re-training of officers and men of the force towards imbibing the new direction, which is democratic policing of the state.
