Kwara Police Launch Public Complaint Rapid Response UnitThe Kwara State Police Command, in an attempt to ensure that the officers comply with the change begins with me policy of the federal government has launched a unit called ‘Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit’.

This is planned to ensure that members of the public are not cheated or maltreated in anyway.

The State Commissioner of Police, Olushola Amore, who led other officers in a walk around the major streets and roads in the state capital Ilorin distributed pamphlets to motorists and passersby on who to call or channel their grievances to in case of maltreatment from the Police.

Addressing the people at Post Office area, the Commissioner of Police noted that the Police was rebranding, adding that the change mantra should begin with the officers.

The usual complaints of the public against the officers he added have been corrected since his assumption in the state, adding that there are ways the public could now assess the performance of the officers when maltreated.

Irregular arrest or bribe taking he assured would become a thing of the past in the state.

“Police is rebranding and the change should begin with the Police change and that change you will see in our service delivery, but that service delivery can only be measured when you give us feedback.

“That is why there is this launching of Public Complaints Rapid Response Unit on which you have seven platforms through which members of the public can get back to the Police on measurement of assessment either in our operations or attitude of our men.

“This is in continuation of the Police strategy that I put in place when I resumed in the state and directed all DPOs to write their phone numbers and mine on their police stations.’’
