The Commissioner of Police, CP, Kaduna State Command, Ali Janga decorated about 74 officers who had just been promoted.
The promotion was part of the Inspector-General of Police’s commitment to motivate personnel and strengthen the fight against crime in Nigeria.
The CP said the promotion was in line with the police agenda for improving security and stability.
Janga explained that the promoted police officers included three DCPs, 14 ACPs, seven CSPs and 50 other officers of the State’s command.
“The promotion is aimed at boosting the morale of the officers so that they can be dedicated to duties and good service delivery. To whom much is given, much is expected. You should live up to expectation by reciprocating the gesture with discipline, hard work and vigilance,” he said.
The CP commended the people of the State and the media for their continuous support to the command, especially in giving prompt information and complaints.
“The information and complaints have led to so many successes recorded by the command in combating crime.”
He advised other officers to emulate the good character of those promoted and always be alive to their responsibilities .
The CP told the promoted officers about the additional responsibilities bestowed on them and also urged the officers to be ready to face the challenges ahead.
Speaking on armed banditry, kidnapping and other security challenges in Kaduna, CP Janga said the menace has been reduced substantially across the State.
“We promise to do more in this new year; we will also replace the newly promoted officers with good and capable ones to fill the vacuum as they will no longer serve in their initial units, but head other units,” he added.
