Acting Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba has said a newly-designed identity would soon be issued to members of the Police Community Relations Committee, PCRC nationwide.
This was contained in a statement issued by acting Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Emmanuel Ojukwu after the Abba met with leadership of the PCRC nationwide in Abuja.
He said the introduction of the new identity card became imperative because the police wants to check the proliferation of fake identity cards stressing that some people use the identity card to impersonate members of the PCRC and defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
According to Abba “A newly-designed PCRC ID card will be issued to authentic members soonest.” Abba also charged the leadership of the PCRC nationwide to re-invigorate the tenets of the Committee and advised members to deepen the concept of community policing.
The acting police boss described community policing as a veritable instrument in achieving the mission statement of the current leadership.
