Plateau State to create Community Police to tackle Insecurity — Gov. Lalong

The Government of Plateau State has stated that it will create community policing, using “indigenous options,” to protect the state.

The State Governor, Simon Lalong, made this known on Tuesday while declaring open a meeting on Peace, Security and Community Dialogue at Government House, Jos.

He stated that the enlarged Peace and Security Dialogue, themed: “Domestication of Community Policing in Plateau State: Exploring Indigenous Options,” was organised to put forward practical and proactive measures that will address violent attacks in the state.

It is a sad thing that we are forced to hold this meeting again instead of coming together to celebrate peaceful coexistence and prosperity of our land and its good people, he said.

At the moment, we already have some structures which are in tandem with the Community Policing model such as the Operation Rainbow, Early warning System, Vigilante Volunteers and Community-based Intelligence Volunteers,” Mr Lalong stated.
