LNSC Blows Hot, Charges Workers To Increase Performance
The General Manager of the Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Corps, Prince Ifalade Oyekan, has charged officers to increase their efforts towards improving the performance of the corps in their respective communities.
Prince Oyekan gave the charge at a meeting with Senior Management Staff, Divisional Commanders and Corps Superintendents of Local Governments and Local Council Development Areas of Lagos State at the Agency’s Headquarters, Multi-Agency Complex, Bolade Oshodi, Lagos.
He stated that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu expects a high level of performance from officers of the corps, adding that the security of lives and property of Lagosians is a priority to the present administration, hence the need to increase their efforts towards safeguarding the local communities.
Asserting that LNSC needs to compete effectively with their counterparts across the globe and in line with international best practices, Oyekan said that officers will undergo written examinations to ascertain their level of competence, just as he challenged them to always be alert and technology-inclined, saying that “LNSC Officers have to be Kings of their various areas and set the pace in community policing”.
The General Manager also used the opportunity to demonstrate the use of drones, riot shields and body-worn cameras earlier launched by Mr. Governor, stressing that the cameras and other gadgets will enhance monitoring, help officers during litigation while the riot shield will protect the officers during violent situations.
While noting that all the initiatives are geared towards boosting the efficiency of LNSC Officers, Prince Oyekan expressed confidence in the performance of the Corps and enjoined them to ensure that all hands are on deck to improve the Agency’s rating among other law enforcement agencies in the State and by extension Nigeria as a whole.
Speaking at the meeting, the Director of Admin and Human Resources in the Agency, Mr. Oludolapo Omotoye, advised the officers to maintain a high level of integrity, saying that discipline and comportment will make them the cynosure of all eyes.
In his remarks, the Director of Operations, LNSC, Mrs. E.O Ogunbode urged the officers to be proud of their uniforms and prove themselves worthy ambassadors of the Agency and the State at all times.
