LETI tasks newly trained CBD officers on professionalism, integrity

The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI) has charged newly trained Central Business District (CBD) Enforcement Officers to uphold integrity and professionalism in the discharge of their duties.

The Director General LETI, Mr Ifalade Oyekan, made the call at the end of a three-day training held at the institute for new volunteers of the CBD Corps on Friday.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that 40 officers participated in the law enforcement officers proficiency training.

They were trained on various aspects of law enforcement, including public transportation and traffic management, emotional intelligence, investigation, human relations, first aid, physical agility and self defence.

Oyekan said that the training was in fulfillment of the institute’s mandate to equip law enforcement officers with 21st century professional standards and tactical proficiency needed for quality delivery of service.

He said that the activities of the institute were in line with the Lagos State Government THEMES agenda which are: Traffic Management and Transportation; Health and Environment; Education and Technology; Making Lagos a 21st Century state; Security and Governance.

“The Security of lives and property is paramount to the Lagos State government which was why this training was mandated and approved by Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu under the THEMES agenda.

“You have received training for three days in different aspects that will mould and shape your operation on the field.

“I urge you to be very diligent, respect senior officers, be courteous and most importantly, uphold your integrity because this will take you far in life,” he said.

Oyekan said the newly trained members would be monitored periodically to evaluate their performance on the field vis-a-vis the training received.

He also urged the officers to adhere strictly to safety guidelines of the NCDC and Lagos State government directives in the discharge of their duties during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The director general said that the institute would commence its  training programmes for other law enforcement agencies in the coming weeks, which would be done in accordance to the safety guidelines.

Also, the Director, Admin and Human Resources CBD, Mr Babatunde Onafowokan, expressed his satisfaction at the level of training and progress of the new volunteers.

Onafowokan urged them to take advantage of the training, imbibe what they have learned in their daily operations and be good representatives of the CBD.

“We just engaged this set of volunteers in January and we decided to bring them to LETI since it is saddled with the responsibility of training law enforcement officers to be well equipped for the job on the field.

“If we do not train them, we can not blame them if anything goes wrong.

“With what I witnessed during the training and the feedback, I must say I am impressed with what was achieved,” he said.

Onafowokan said the new officers would be deployed to Ikeja CBD to serve as law enforcement officers in traffic management, sanitation and security, and other enforcement functions.

He said the existing officers in Lagos Island district who had not been trained in years would also be registered for training in LETI soon.

Speaking to NAN, Ghiazat Oseni, one of the newly trained officers, said that though the training was tiring and stressful, it was insightful and impactful.

She expressed gratitude to the facilitators saying she had been equipped for the task ahead on the field.
