Police warn recruits against breaches of social media policy

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has warned police officers-in-training at the 16 police training schools and colleges against the misuse of social media.

The security agency advised them to learn and apply the principles of public relations to improve service delivery and efficiency in the discharge of their duties.

The Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, delivered a lecture at the Ikeja Police College, Lagos.

He reiterated the need to use public relations to support police strategies to fight crime, criminality and other forms of social vices in Nigeria.

The PRO, who briefed over 700 recruits on the directive of the Inspector General Usman Baba, urged them not to violate the NPF Social Media Policy.

The regulations, which guide officers and men in the use and regulation of social media platforms, provide penalties for violations.

“The policy prohibits the inappropriate use of social media platforms to promote indiscipline, unethical acts and unauthorised activities by police personnel, whether in an official or personal capacity,” Adejobi said.

The training will be conducted in all police colleges and training institutions to train recruits on the tenets, ethics and values of policing.

Adejobi urged them to have good character and be worthy ambassadors as they prepare for their farewell and induction.

The spokesman added that the training they received would enhance their capacity and preparedness for effective security management before, during and after the 2023 elections.
