The Inspector General of Police, Alkali Usman Baba has noted that the Police Intelligence Centre in Share, Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State, will assume full Operation in earnest.
The Police Chief stated this while paying a courtesy call on the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq at the Government House in Ilorin.
He noted that the Intelligence Centre should have commenced operation before now and that his presence in the state, is to facilitate the commencement of training at the Security institution.
“The government of President Muhammadu Buhari is doing its best efforts to meet our needs. The police reform is also being pursued. Our pension, which is one of the bane of retired police officers, is also being looked at. We have one of our most important institutions in Kwara which is our intelligence school which ought to have taken up since in Share (Ifelodun local government). My mission is to get it take off immediately.”
Alkali said his administration is adopting intelligence gathering and ICT to check crimes and criminalities in the country.
“I have a mission and vision of policing through intelligence and proactive means of policing. Policing is key, ICT is key and training is key. With the three, you can sit down and police the whole state,” he said.
“It is our intention to do manpower development in the art of intelligence gathering so that we will be able to police the country not manually but through e-policing. We can do a lot with proactive policing instead of being reactive. We are asking for more support from your administration to ensure that the school take off.562
