A statement released by the Police Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated the program equipped the participating Police Officers with measures to ensure the safety of Nigerian schools and enable the country to have a serene educational environment for the citizens.

He said: "Following the Strategic Forum on Achieving Safer Schools in Nigeria and the introduction of the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Manual for the Safe School Project on August 9, 2023, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, Ph.D., NPM, as part of the mandate of the Nigeria Police Force to ensure the security of lives and property in the country, has officially unveiled state-of-the-art security equipment as well as commenced a training program for State Coordinators of the Schools Protection Squad (SPS) and selected Divisional Police Officers nationwide, in a bid to reinforce the program for viability in achieving the National Action Plan for Schools Protection.

The official unveiling and launching of the training program, which marks a significant step forward by the Force in the commitment to safeguard the education system, children, and young ones, by fostering a secure and conducive learning environment across the nation, was held at the Goodluck Jonathan International Peacekeeping Hall, Force Headquarters, Abuja on Thursday 29th February, 2024.

The IGP emphasized that the training program aims to equip State Coordinators and Divisional Police Officers from all thirty-six States and the FCT with comprehensive knowledge of the Police’s role in the National Plan for Safe Schools in Nigeria by facilitating the development of a strategic roadmap for the Force’s collaboration with various stakeholders to secure our children’s learning environments while optimizing the human and material resources of the Force to tackle crimes, particularly those targeting educational institutions.

The National Coordinator, of Financing Safe Schools, Mrs. Halima Iliya, noted that the capacities of security personnel, schools’ host communities, critical stakeholders, students, and staff of schools would be built to help them all fit into the National Plan itself and play their respective roles. The event also had in attendance representatives of all relevant ministries, departments, and agencies, as well as the Force Management Team, Senior Police Officers, and other distinguished guests.

The Inspector General of Police appreciated the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget & National Planning for spearheading the “Financing Safe Schools National Plan”, and all who have contributed to reaching the current milestone in the program noting that their invaluable efforts are vital to the country’s progress. He also tasked the officers nominated for the capacity-building training to leverage the training to boost the effect of the School Protection Squad in their respective Commands.
