Story from Ahmed SAKA, Bauchi

The newly appointed Bauchi State Commissioner of Police, Umar Mamman Sanda has warned that his administration will not condone indolence from any person, nor will it tolerate acts of corruption in any form. He declared that anyone caught will not be spared no matter who he is.

Sanda, who took over from the former Commissioner, Sylvester Abiodun Alabi, made the statement when he assumed office today. Sylvester has since been posted to the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

Speaking while receiving the mantle of Police leadership in the state, Sanda said that his operational model will be proactive in nature and will be based on best practices of effective policing within the community with a particular focus on community policing.

The Commissioner said that the command will continue to collaborate with other sister agencies in the state in order to be able to effectively police the state, stressing that security is teamwork and citizens based.

He said that the command will not go out of the agenda set by the IGP, Alkali Baba saying that, “All we will do is to ensure that the focus is not lost. Our determination is to ensure that the police acted as the true friend it is to the public.”

The Commissioner, who agreed that the Police cannot be everywhere at the same time due to the shortage of personnel, said it will do its best to respond to distress calls with minimum delays considering the terrain of the state.

He called for cooperation with members of the public to make it easier for the Police to operate, saying that, “The Police need the information to be able to make headway, let members of the public volunteer information that will lead to curbing of criminal activities.
