The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has called on the United Nations (UN) to make policies that will engender sustainable peace and development amongst its member nations.
The Police Chief made the call on Thursday, while addressing participants at the 3rd United Nations Chiefs of Police Summit (UNCOPS), in the United States of America.
IGP Baba, who spoke on ‘Fostering Sustainable Peace and Development through United Nations Policing’, further called on the world body to continuously render necessary assistance towards improved policing system across the globe while equally assuring of the commitment of the Nigeria Police to extending its manpower for effective peace operations where necessary.
The UNCOPS summit, the third of its kind, is a global platform that brings together heads of police organizations from around the globe to discuss ways of strengthening global security and addressing cross-border threats through the unifying power of national and United Nations policing.
The IGP also met with the Under-Secretary-General of the Department of Peace Operations, United Nations Headquarters, Mr. Jean-Pierre Lacroix, during which they held deliberations on a myriad of policing ideas, especially as they affect the Nigeria Police Force and global security in general.
The IGP rounded off the summit with a meeting on Friday, with the Director of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Agency, in Washington DC.
