Community Policing Solution To Security Challenges – Oyo CP
Commissioner of Police in Oyo state, Mr. Shina Olukolu, says community policing is the solution to security challenges hindering the growth of Nigeria.
Mr. Olukolu stated this while receiving the award tagged “crime crusher” of the Nigeria Police Force organised by Police Community Relations Committee, PCRC in collaboration with crime alert security network.
Mr. Olukolu stated further that the support of the public by policing their environment for security agencies would go a long way as police cannot be everywhere.
