Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has rolled out a groundbreaking plan for the enhancement of security and safety in Lagos State.
The Governor approved a mass training for the State’s law enforcement personnel on the use of body worn cameras, ahead of the deployment of the digital tools for security operations across the State.
The three-day training, which will commence in May, will be facilitated by the State’s Law Enforcement Training Institute, headed by Prince Oyekan Falade.
After the training, all State-funded law enforcement officers will be commissioned to wear body cameras for their operations.
Sanwo-Olu said the move would improve transparency and accountability in the activities of law enforcement agencies, and put the State Government in a better position to respond to security challenges in real time.
Sanwo-Olu said the launch of the body-worn cameras would take the Government a step closer towards fulfilling its security agenda, stressing that the introduction of devices to frontline security team and officers would enhance their productivity and professionalism, while also fast-tracking law enforcement process.
