IN order to help Nigeria Police Force leadership with modern policing skills, the United Kingdom, UK, Department for International Development Justice for All Programme has organised a 3-day management retreat for senior police officers in Abuja. Nigerian Pilot gathered that the retreat will ensure that the Force management team has a deeper understanding of the policy direction and best way to achieve the Inspector General of Police, Ag. IGP Ibrahim K. Idris’ vision of ‘policing with integrity’. Speaking at the opening ceremony yesterday, IGP Idris charged the senior officers to deliberate on the best way forward considering how their respective departments will support him attain the vision. He stated, “We also need to understand roles of the various oversight bodies, the national and international partners, and perhaps more importantly, finding ways to engage with the ‘hard to reach communities’, while actively sustaining existing relationship with the wider communities”. The police chief noted that they have been given a unique opportunity to lead one of the largest and most diverse police organisations in the world, and that though their task may appear daunting and complex, he expressed confidence that team work will make easy the job of modernising and reforming the Nigeria police Force. He defined leadership as a process and not a position. “Many in leadership positions demand respect based on their rank and title. However, we need to understand that respect is earned.
