Over 100 Nigerian police officers have been trained on incidents management by the United Kingdom (UK) Policing College across the country.
Mr Michael Askew, Director, UK Policing College, disclosed this at the training of another batch of law enforcement officers on Monday in Lagos.
According to Askew, the training is to support Nigeria in her effort to respond to crisis in line with international standards.
“The course will improve the ability of senior officers of the Nigeria Police Force, along with partner agencies at middle and senior management level, to understand and apply the principles of modern incident command.
“The aim of the course is also to develop current senior commanders’ knowledge and skills to effectively manage emergencies, crisis and major incidents.
“In achieving this aim, the course will also provide an opportunity for the officers to acquire the knowledge and skills to deliver the courses in-house,” Askew said.
He said the course was designed to develop the theories, models, principles and practices of major incident management required for a multi agency approach.
