The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI) has charged newly trained Central Business District (CBD) Enforcement Officers to uphold integrity and professionalism in the discharge of their duties.
The Director General LETI, Mr Ifalade Oyekan made the call at the end of a three-day training held at the institute for new volunteers of the CBD Corps.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 40 officers participated in the law enforcement officers proficiency training.
They were trained on various aspects of law enforcement including public transportation and traffic management, emotional intelligence, investigation, human relations, first aid, physical agility and self defense.
Oyekan said the training was in fulfillment of the institute’s mandate to equip law enforcement officers with 21st century professional standards and tactical proficiency needed for quality delivery of service.
He furthered that the activities of the institute were in line with the Lagos State Government THEMES agenda which are: Traffic Management and Transportation; Health and Environment; Education and Technology; Making Lagos a 21st Century state; Security and Governance.
“The Security of lives and property is paramount to the Lagos state government which was why this training was mandated and approved by Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu under the THEMES agenda.
“You have received training for three days in different aspects that will mould and shape your operation on the field.
“I urge you to be very diligent, respect senior officers, be courteous and most importantly, uphold your integrity because this will take you far in life.
Oyekan said the newly trained members would be monitored periodically to evaluate their performance on the field vis-a-vis the training received.
