The new Commissioner of Police, Lagos Command, Abiodun Alabi, has said that respect for fundamental human rights and media partnership are part of his seven-point template and policing vision.
The CP, who unveiled his seven-point template and policing vision at a media parley in Lagos on Tuesday, stressed the importance of holding regular parleys with journalists where perception and other misconceptions will be tabled and addressed in an amicable manner.
Speaking with journalists including representatives of the National Association of Online Security Reporters, NAOSRE, CP Alabi further stressed the necessity of a Police-Journalists cordial relationship for information sharing and management saying he will be available to respond to issues at all times.
Alabi described Lagos State as a familiar terrain, having served in different capacities in the State for many years.
The commissioner promised to restore officers zeal to improve sanity and peace to the cosmopolitan city, adding that crime rate can continue to reduce tremendously with the help of credible media supports in the state.
The seven-point template includes Visibility policing and control of security space, Police officers’ conduct in accordance with Police professional principles, Confidence building and trust in members of the public through intelligence-led community policing, Public accessibility and feedback, and Crime trends and patterns monitoring.
