Disturbed by the dubious attacks on police facilities and Correctional Centres in Imo state, recently, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has summoned the Area Commanders, Mobile Police Commanders and Conmmanders of the Tactical Operational Units of the command.

The whole idea is to deliberate and review operational strategies of the command towards forestalling any attacks in the state.

This is also in line with a bid to be proactive by fortifying security in and around Police formations and Correctional Centres in Lagos State.

The meeting that was held on Tuesday 6th April, 2021, in the Conference Hall, State Headquarters, Ikeja, had in attendance the Deputy Commissioners of Police, Operations, Administration and State CID, Panti respectively, the fourteen (14) Area Commanders, Police Mobile Force Commanders, Commanders of Rapid Response Squad and Taskforce, Commanders of the Special Squad and Strike Team and the State Intelligence Bureau of the command.

The Commissioner of Police engaged them in an interactive session to assess and brainstorm on having better security structures in the state and to prevent any attacks on police formations, correctional centre and vulnerable places within Lagos State.

The meeting agreed on strategies to be adopted including robust intelligence gathering, surveillance, sectorising the state for easy policing, constant patrol and deployment of personnel to strategic places and multi agency collaboration amongst others.

The police boss gave clear directives to the full implementation and enforcement of the strategies emplaced to achieve the goals of effective security of the state generally.

In the same vein, in furtherance of his plans to forestal any form of attacks in the state, the Commissioner of Police played host to the Comptroller of Correctional Service Lagos State, Mr Francis Adebisi, in his ikeja office in Wednesday 7th April, 2021.

The Commissioner of Police, while deliberating on securing the major Correctional Centres in Lagos State, promised the Comptroller to sustain the deployment of police mobile men to the Correctional Centres in the state. CP Odumosu also promised to partner with the Correctional Service and other stakeholders to improve on the Criminal Justice System in Lagos State.

The Comptroller Adebisi, commended the efforts of CP Odumosu, at providing adequate security for all and sundry and promoting sustainable synergy amongst security agencies in the state.

He further eulogized the police boss for his sterling leadership qualities in piloting the affairs of the police command.
