From AUGUSTINE OSAYANDE
ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Nigeria Police Force has entered into a partnership with the United Kingdom’s Association of Criminal Records Office (ACRO) in a bid to retool the former’s security architecture.
Emmanuel Ojukwu, Force Public Relations Officer, said the synergy will among other things include the review Nigeria Police Criminal Justice System, develop a criminal records register, provide the police with electronic criminal records gadgets and modernise police information technology needs.
Ojukwu added that David Mckinney and Graeme Wallace from ACRO made presentations on the benefits of electronic finger print data base during a visit to Force Headquarters in Abuja.
He said members of the Nigeria Police Forum, from the UK Metropolitan Police, representatives from the Ministry of Police Affairs, Prisons, Economic and Financial Crime Commission and the Nigeria Immigration Service were also in attendance during the visit.
Ojukwu said the Inspector General of Police, SOLOMON Arase, maintained that the benefit of having forensic led investigation could be overemphasised, as it underpinned the strategic importance of partnering with ACRO.
