The Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Police Command, Tonye Ebitibituwa has reminded officers and men in his command of the need to be professional and diligent in the performance of their duties in order to earn the confidence of the members of the public.
He said his administration would not tolerate corruption, laxity and indiscipline, adding that Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Department whose division or formation excelled in these areas as well as in the general cleanliness of offices and environment, in addition to their crime prevention efforts, would be adequately rewarded.

Mr. Ebitibituwa disclosed this on Monday at the state command headquarters in Enugu during an interactive forum with his Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and other heads of department and sections.

The Commissioner further reminded officers on the need to be neutral during investigation of cases.

He said his administration will partner with relevant stakeholders in the business of securing lives and properties in Enugu State.

Mr Ebitibituwa warned that policemen should always use their arms in line with the conditions recognised by the Police Force to avoid cases of extra judicial killings which are often times described as accidental discharge.

The Commissioner finally warned against illegal and long detention of persons by any officer as anyone caught will not be spared.

Mr Ebitibituwa was transferred from Kebbi to Enugu on 18th February as commissioner of police, taking over from Musa A. Daura who has been redeployed to Kano State as commissioner of police.
