New CP, Ebunoluwarotimi , Promises To Flush Out Criminals From Kwara

The Command will ensure the judicious and effective deployment of the available manpower and law enforcement equipment

The newly appointed Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mrs Ebunoluwarotimi Adelesi, on Tuesday,  assured kwarans of her determination to flush out criminal elements and make the state crime free.

The new CP stated this at the Police headquarters, in Ilorin, Kwara state capital, when she met with journalists in the state.

Ebunoluwarotimi who was once a Deputy Commissioner of Police in the state, takes great delight to be back home.

She noted that  Kwara State is having a low crime rate. Despite the low crime rate, it is not absolutely free from threats, including kidnapping, robbery, cultism and allied offences, intra and inter-communal clashes as well as road traffic accidents (RTA).

“Our resolve to have crime prevention as the major policy thrust is further enhanced by the notion that crime can directly undermine the legitimacy of a State by destroying the trust relationship between the people and the State.

The police boss said efforts will be put in place and sustain strategies to reduce, avoid or eliminate victimization by crime and violence.

Ebunoluwarotimi added that such strategies include intelligence gathering, intensified anti-crime patrols, cooperation and collaboration with sister security agencies, as well as deployment of Quick Response Squads.

According to her, existing efforts to cooperate and collaborate with the communities will also be enhanced since they are in a good position to contribute to the policing of their environment. These strategies are aimed at preventing the occurrence of crimes by reducing opportunities and increasing the risks of being apprehended.

“Efforts will therefore be intensified in collaboration with other relevant government, non-governmental agencies and the public to make crime unattractive and unprofitable.

She, however, assures that the Command will ensure the judicious and effective deployment of the available manpower and law enforcement equipment (LEE) for the protection of the lives and property of all law-abiding citizens and residents of the State to enhance the quality of life and provision of adequate security needed for economic activities to thrive in the State.

The state shared borders with Kwara, including Oyo, Osun, Ekiti, Kogi and Niger States, she said arrangements are being put in place to strengthen the existing collaboration between the composite State Commands.

“The Police Border Patrol Squad domiciled in the State will also be effectively deployed and supervised to forest across-border crime.

She calls for the cooperation of every law-abiding member of the public to make Kwara State a very safe and secure place where peace and tranquillity reign.

The Commissioner of Police assures that the Police command will be civil and firm in discharging its statutory duties without fairness or favour.

She added that officers and men will be effectively superintended to ensure they discharge their duties with a high level of professionalism while particular attention shall be paid to the protection and promotion of the human rights of all.
