The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, has concluded plans to unveil the Abuja Study Center of the Nigeria Police Public Relations School, which construction was concluded under his administration.
The Force Spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Tuesday, noted that the school was built with a focus on building the public relations base of all officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force to improve the quality of interactions with members of the public.
Adejobi said, “The three-storey building located across the Police Force Headquarters boasts of renowned persons in Public Relations as tutors and visiting lecturers. The IGP has mandated the Provost in charge of the Police Public Relations School, CP Emmanuel Ojukwu (retd.), to build up the school’s curriculum in line with the standards of international public relations practices, with a special focus on behavior management, professionalism, basic, intermediate, and advanced public relations courses, and psychological courses geared at human capacity building of members of the Force.”
He also noted that the IG reiterated the commitment of the NPF to train and retrain officers and men of the Force.
“The IG, while reiterating the commitment of the Force to training and retraining of officers and men of the Force, emphasized that officers will gain train-the-trainers experience which they will be directed to strategically and professionally pass on to the men under their command. He equally assures that deliberate steps will be taken to boost the capacity of the school to admit members of other agencies nationally and internationally for short and long-term courses in public relations practice.”
