LNSC notices a tweet insinuating that it’s Officers are idling away on the highways.
This notion is wrong and against one of the 4 cardinal principles of community Policing which is high visibility to serve as deterrence and prevent crime.
Volumes of achievements are recorded daily by the sheer presence of LNSC Offices in highly visible areas including prevention of car jacking, snatching of money, phones and jewellery from road users and pedestrians in very busy areas, rescue of missing persons mostly children,assistance to accident victims,fire victims,assistance to vulnerable pedestrians like the elderly and school children,assistance to sister enforcement Agencies like LAGESC,LASTMA,LASPARK etc.
We closely synergise with critical stakeholders like CDAs/CDCs by attending their meetings to feel the security pulse in the Neighbourhoods but we cannot attach our Officers to individuals in CDAs/CDCs but encourage them to give us information that can generate credible intelligence on crime.
We are also actively involved in the other 3 cardinal principles of Community Policing viz encouraging participation, representation and accountability.
LNSC has a dedicated Intelligence Department which works only in Neighbourhoods to gather intelligence to assist the Police apart from our personnel who are visible in the public.
We are just 5,600 serving a population of over 20 million residents, and we are posted to beats daily based on crime prevalence, pattern,volume, population density, commercial actvities and are fully stretched and can not in any way be idle.Support Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corps with credible information and play your part in achieving a Greater Lagos.
Make constructive suggestions to help us but please no distractions through negative comments. Security is our joint responsibility and all residents are as involved as we are .
Our Governor is highly motivating us,so support us too with information through our 57 LGAs/LCDAs offices….. In the new year 2020, join the crusade to support the security and governance component of Mr.Governor,s THEMES Agenda for the overall socio-economic development of Lagos. offices.
