Community Policing, Way Forward – Donald Duke

In Breaking News, Politics

By CrossRiverWatch Admin

A former Governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donald Duke, has joined other Nigerians to declare support Operation Amotekun with a warning that South-West Governors must ensure the personnel are well trained.

According to Duke, State Governments can establish their own security outfit in a true federal system, adding that community policing is the way forward.

He said, “Community policing is absolutely inescapable, we can delay it and we see the consequence. When we decide to run a true federal system sooner or later, we will appreciate that the states have the responsibility of looking after themselves within the context of a federal nation.

“Eighty per cent of police work is intelligence gathering; who is gathering the intelligence; we are being more reactive than proactive. The police can train these people (Operation Amotekun) on intelligence gathering and allow them to carry small arms like pistol and their job will be basically to know everybody within their community.”
