Police get new uniform

The IG of Police believes the new uniform will help to launder police image

President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the test-run of a new uniform for men and officers of the Nigeria Police Force.

The Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Abubakar, who appeared in the new uniform Tuesday said the new police camouflage would eventually become one of the Force’s operational outfits.

Mr. Abubakar said the new dress is in line with the “transformation agenda of the Federal Government and the long desire of the Police Management-Team to reform and to launder an acceptable image for the police through the turn-out of its officers and men.”

According to a statement by police spokesperson, Olusola Amore, the  camouflage,  an admixture of black, white and ash colours, will serve as “operational dress for the police with some inherent advantages when fully integrated and confirmed as one of the official police outfits”

He said, “The advantages of the new police camouflage include, cost effective to maintain; operationally durable; highly customized with security features to forestall impersonation and environmentally friendly.”

He urged the general public to come up with constructive criticisms regarding the new police camouflage so that public opinion will be given adequate consideration.
