Nigeria: Swiss Govt Spends $100,000 in Training Nigeria Police

Abuja — Swiss Government and the development partners of the Nigeria Police Force, Prisoners Rehabilitation and Welfare Action (PRAWA), Thursday said it has expended $100,000 in the training of police officers in 2017.

This is even as the Force launched a national database for the training and development of Police officers in Nigeria.

The database is expected to document the information of all police officers who have undertaken specific trainings in the Nigeria Police, either local or foreign based.

While commissioning the Database Unit, the Deputy Inspector-General in charge of Training, Emmanuel Inyang said "different police officers have undergone different training and I have observed over the years that some of the people picked for trainings have already undergone such training and I see such as duplication.

"It will be a reliable depository and an up to date database of trained officers for record keeping, planning and deployment of the officers to appropriate department and sections where their knowledge and expertise acquired during the various training will be put into adequate use.

"This database would help us know the number of people, strength, the course and the duration of course attended, as well as help in capacity development and also help in deployment of officers to where they would function effective for better service delivery."

Also, the Executive Director of PRAWA, Uju Agumoh also said the database would ensure that those trained are rightly deployed.
