“The CP has mandated the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Operation to organize Continuous ‘OPERATION SHOW OF FORCE’ with effect from Monday 20th December 2021 in all parts of the State with a view to ensuring a hitch-free Yuletide period.” 

The CP urges members of the public to be law-abiding and continue to support the police in the fight against crime and criminalities while assuring them of the Command’s commitment to providing security, maintenance of law, and protection of lives and properties among other duties in the State.
