With the N-Power Transition path option which includes the community police, it has become reality that very soon some N-Power beneficiaries will be converted into community police officers(CPO). The latest basic information we gathered on the upcoming N-Power Community Police Officers(CPO) is that the CPOs will be dressed in normal police uniforms but with a different force service number to distinguish them from the regular cops.
40,000 CPOs to be recruited from 2016 Npower volunteers and be trained in police colleges all over the country. The CPOs duties includes:
- Administrative duties at the police station in their community
- Crowd control
- Accident scene duties
- Charge room duties alternative dispute resolution (ADR)
- Other less sensitive/risky functions.
The CPOs won't be armed and to be headed nationally by AIG Zama Bala Senchi from Jigawa state. They are most likely be appointed Special ASP ll (⭐) under the special constabulary category Culled from IGP and Force PPRO speeches.
