The Police Service Commission (PSC) says henceforth police officers will no longer be promoted to the next rank without the requisite training programmes and examinations.
A statement by the commission’s Head, Press and Public Relations, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, said the commission`s Chairman, Mr Musiliu Smith disclosed this at a meeting with the management of the Nigeria Police Force on Friday in Abuja.
“From now and henceforth, one of the conditions for promotion must be attendance and passing the senior Command Course for senior officers and other prescribed courses for others,” he said.
Smith said that the force before now had promoted officers severally without attending the requisite training programmes attached to the ranks.
“Henceforth, result of performance of officers from appropriate training courses must be attached to the recommendation to the commission for promotion,” he said.
