“The society has evolved greatly. Today intelligence-led policing is in vogue. We shall deploy technology and also rely on other sources of generating information/ intelligence in the discharge of our duties.

“The DPOs have been directed to make adequate use of the recently recruited Special Constabularies in line with the initiative of the IGP.

“Community Policing has been widely accepted worldwide. It is a working partnership between the Police and other stakeholders to prevent crime, arrest offenders and find a solution to the problem and enhance the quality of life. We shall therefore synergize with PCRC and other willing bodies/individuals maximally,” he said.
