A female police officer, Inspector Justina Omogbai, has been praised by IGP Alkali Baba for the professionalism she has shown while performing her traffic duties.
CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, the FPRO, issued a statement on Tuesday in which the IGP expressed his praise.
Baba lauded Omogbai, a member of the Traffic Unit at the Sabo Divisional Headquarters in Lagos State, for her dedication and the way she has portrayed the Force to the public.
“Omogbai positively representing the force among the community particularly with respect to school children crossing the road at her duty post, by taking personal steps to ensure they are properly dressed and safe while heading to and from school.
“The NPF noted that her gesture aligns with the Community Policing tenets and the concept of “Catching Them Young”, as the formative age is very vital to training children to be law-abiding and compliant with regulation.
“Her singular action brings to their memories the standard practice of Nigeria Police Traffic Officers,” he said.
The police chief charged officers with modelling good behaviour and serving as honourable ambassadors.
“I charge all officers and men to emulate her good conduct and be shining examples in their respective jurisdictions and also be law-abiding.
“Sow the seed of appropriate civil conduct in the minds and hearts of members of their communities particularly the young ones.
“You can serve as evangelists of values and good potentials of the NPF contrary to the present erroneous perception,” Baba said.
