… Says Cooperation, Collaboration, Vital To Safety
The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI) has organised a three-day retreat themed, “Law Enforcement Synergy through Professionalism and Efficiency: COVID-19 Era and Beyond”. The event held at Noforija, Epe, and was for law enforcement officers of the agencies of the State.
In his welcome address at the event, the Chief Executive Officer of LETI, Mr. Adegboyega Bajulaiye, said the annual retreat was geared towards repositioning the law enforcement training institute for improvement and public awareness that will have an impact on service delivery.
He explained that participants will brainstorm on the need to ensure team building for effective collaboration among all law enforcement agencies in the State, stressing that this will ensure the achievement of a common goal on security in Lagos.
In his remarks, the General Manager of the Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Agency (LSNA), Prince Ifalade Oyekan, called on Lagos residents to cooperate and collaborate with Law Enforcement Agencies in the State towards making it safe and secure for all residents.
While imploring all stakeholders to support the agencies in ensuring that Lagos is crime-free, Prince Oyekan thanked Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the various steps taken to ensure the security of lives and property of both residents and visitors to Lagos and decried the incessant cases of violent crimes across the country.
He said, “Mr. Governor’s investment in security is no doubt a right step towards ensuring the people of the State can sleep with both eyes closed and we cannot but complement these investments by doing our part as stakeholders”.
The General Manager, who was the immediate past CEO of LETI before his new posting at the Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Agency, commended the Institute for continuing with the programmes as laid down in its annual projection.
Mr. Saheed Quadri, Director of Advisory Services, Ministry of Justice, representing the State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), reiterated that the role of LETI is to train law enforcement officers and the retreat was focussed on helping them determine areas that require more efficiency to deliver their mandates.
He explained that the retreat is one of the proactive measures instituted by Mr. Governor to improve security in the State, advising the participants to maximise the opportunity and put into good use all that they learn at the retreat towards enhancing service delivery.
One of the facilitators at the event, Mr. Ope Amusan from Nizzrel Consulting, affirmed that the Lagos State Government was determined to ensure that the law enforcement agencies work in synergy to achieve and actualise “a secure Lagos” as conceptualised in the T.H.E.M.E.S agenda of Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu led administration.
He also commended the government’s efforts for providing the law enforcement agencies with soft and hardware equipment recently commissioned by President Buhari to further secure and safeguard the lives and property of residents in Lagos State.
The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI) is an agency saddled with the responsibility of training and retraining law enforcement officers from LASTMA, VIS, KAI and LNSA, among others.
