The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has launched a Police Public Relations School to train officers in the 12 zonal commands, 36 state commands and some senior officers.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris disclosed this yesterday during a capacity training seminar for spokespersons of the NPF.
Idris also said the school is part of efforts to change public perception of the police by striving to do away with unethical behaviours.
He urged the PPROs attending the inaugural training at the school to extend the knowledge they would acquire to their colleagues in their respective commands.
“I believe with the launching of this programme, all of you will now put in the focus the importance of the Police to sort of ensure we have a positive image in the eyes of the generality of the public of the citizens of this country,” the IGP said.
