Police Service Commission plans complaint unit

The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Dr Solomon Arase, a former Inspector-General of Police, has announced plans by the commission to set up a Complaint Response Unit parallel to the existing Police Complaint Response Unit under the command of the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters.

Arase made this known on Thursday during separate meetings with officials of a Civil Society Organization, CLEEN Foundation, and the national leadership of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, in Abuja.

According to a statement by the spokesperson for the PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, Arase said, “A police force that does not connect with the public or respect human rights will find it difficult to succeed; we would do everything possible to improve the services of the police,”

According to the statement, the Executive Director, CLEEN Foundation, Gad Peter, said civil society groups were excited with Arase’s appointment to head the PSC, noting that they would support him to deliver on his mandate.
