According to him, since coming on board in 2015, his administration has been engaging security agencies and the traditional institutions to proffer solutions towards the protection of lives and properties of people of the state.
His words “Community policing project is our own, infact, one of the reasons our government created new emirates in the state is to expand the scope of community participation in the handling of security matters.”
Ganduje noted that in 2020, the State Community Policing Advisory Committee was inaugurated under the chairmanship of the Emir of Kano while a community policing awareness campaign was also held in the state as part of an effort to enhance community policing strategy.
The Inspector General Of Police, Muhammad Adamu, represented by the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of zone 1, Sadiq Bello, mentioned that the philosophy behind the introduction of community policing is to provide closer and friendly contact between the police and members of the community in order to enhance the security and safety of the community.
IGP Adamu disclosed that plans have been rolled out for the engagement and utilisation of Special Constabulary in the implementation of community-oriented policing framework for the establishment of partnership in the community and society in general.
He then urged the public that given the prevalence security situation in the country, matters of crime and security should not be left to the police alone. He further said there is, therefore, the need for the adoption of broad-based community engagement partnership, multi-agency collaboration and collective effort in crime management.
While the Emir of Karaye, Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar II, called on the public to join hands with the security agencies and traditional institutions in ensuring the success of the programme.
