Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday, unveiled plans for the launch of a body worn cameras for the state’s security personnel outfits in the management of traffic enforcement in the state.
The event was held at the state Banquet, Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja.
Sanwo-Olu, rolling out a groundbreaking plan for the enhancement of security and safety state, announced the approval of a mass training for the state’s law enforcement personnel on the use of body worn cameras, ahead of the deployment of the digital tools for security operations across the state.
The three-day training, which will commence in May, will be facilitated by the State’s Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI), headed by Prince Oyekan Falade.
After the training, all State-funded law enforcement officers will be commissioned to wear body cameras for their operations.
Sanwo-Olu said the move would improve transparency and accountability in the activities of law enforcement agencies, and put the state government in a better position to respond to security challenges in real time.
