Operatives of the newly established Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) will commence training today, Monday October 19, 2020, so said the police boss, Mohammed Adamu, as reported by Vanguard newspaper.
The IGP said that the SWAT personnel will receive the training to operate within high professional and ethical standards, under the whims of the rule of law as well as the dictates of best International policing practices.
The training is to take place at two locations: The Police Mobile Force training school, Ila Oragun, in Osun State, as well as the Police Mobile Force training school Ended Hills, in Nasarawa State. While reiterating the fact that no member of the defunct SARS will be part of the Tactics Team, the IG said that the International Community of the Red Cross (ICRC) which has over 70 years of experience in humanitarian services would be partnered to provide resource persons and materials for the training.
According to the Police boss, represented by Mr Frank Mba, PPRO, officers selected for the training are young, smart and energetic and have put in no less than 7 years experience devoid of criminal or human rights violation records.
Areas outlined for the training include humanitarian laws, proper handling of firearms in arrest and detention, intelligence policing, operation planning d tactical decision making, hostage rescue tactics, weapon handling, emotional intelligence and other strategic planning areas.
The police boss therefore, called on the citizens to believe in the police reform and co-operate with them.
