Happy 60th Independence Day- Prince Ifalade Oyekan


The Head of Law Enforcement Training Institute –LETI, Prince Ifalade Oyekan has called on Men and Officers of the Lagos State Law Enforcement Agencies comprising of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority- LASTMA, Vehicle Inspection Service-VIS, Kick Against Indiscipline- KAI and Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Corp –LNSC to use the occasion of the 60th Independence Anniversary of Nigeria to rededicate themselves to serving the good people of Lagos State.

 

Prince Oyekan said that since 60 is a retirement age from the civil service, it is high time citizens retired the memories of the past tainted by ethnic jingoism, religious bigotry and self-centeredness to forge a new country that can take its rightful place in the comity of Nations. He thus admonished that since Lagos is the eye of the Nation, there is a need for Lagos to lead the way through the course already charted by the Governor’s THEMES Agenda.

 

The Head of LETI stated that the Law Enforcement Agencies are at the core of the THEMES Agenda as clearly enunciated by the Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-olu who places high premium on Efficient Transportation, Sound Health, Functional Education, Effective Safety, Security and Developmental Sports and he admonished Law Enforcement Officers in Lagos State to justify the huge investment of the Lagos State Government in their development as individuals and Law Enforcement Officers.

 

Earlier at the passing out parade of the 15th Batch of the Lagos State Law Enforcement Officers Mandatory In-service Training on Wednesday the 30th of September, 2020, Mr. Wale Musa, the Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Chief of Staff to the Governor of Lagos State congratulated the Head of LETI on the noticeable transformation of the Institute. He commended the new Management on the various areas of improvement and admonished the participants to reciprocate by putting on public display the great things learnt from the Institute.

 

The one time General Manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) said that the job of Law Enforcement is one of the most difficult in the World and that the people find it difficult to acknowledge the efforts of Law Enforcers in the good life they enjoy.  He however said self-discipline is key in the work of the Officers as people more often than not only see their faults, while playing down their efforts.

He further reminded the Officers of the new consequence of modern technology and the Social media on the job. “Many a number of times only half of the story is told as the recorder is unaware of the beginning and sometime doesn’t even wait to see the end before posting the recordings on the social media.” ”This is more the reason why you must keep your behaviours above board while interacting with the Tax Payers who don’t want to obey the Law, yet expect the Officers to maintain Law and Order.”

 

Prince Ifalade thanked the Permanent Secretary for the visit which he said will act as a morale booster for the Officers as they return to their duties. Ifalade reminded the Officers of his words during the various meetings with them during the training, while saying, “the best gift you can give Mr. Governor is efficient professional services to the people of Lagos State and I am sure you have been adequately prepared for the task.”

 

The next batch of Officers will resume on Monday the 5th of October, 2020 following the Independence Day Celebration.

LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING INSTITUTE SENSITIZES LASWA ON NEW STRATEGIES



The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI) on Thursday sensitized the Water Guards Corps of the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA) on new and strategic ways to optimize and ensure quality delivery of service.




The Director General of LETI, Prince Ifalade Oyekan said the sensitization programme was in fulfillment of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s mandate to reposition and re-orientate law enforcement officers according to the THEMES agenda.

 

They are: Traffic Management and Transportation; Health and Environment; Education and Technology; Making Lagos a 21st Century state; Security and Governance.

Oyekan said that for law enforcement officers to live up to expectations, there was the need to train and retrain officers on global best practices.

 

He said LETI was adopting new training techniques tailored to the specific needs and duties of each law enforcement agency. 

 

Oyekan urged the guards to be ready for the task ahead, as more people would ply the waterways as an alternative route, thereby placing more responsibilities on them. 

 

He said it was therefore pertinent for LASWA water guards to learn new ways to ensure efficient delivery of service. 

 

“If we must decongest and ease our roads, we have to move to water transportation because that is where we are headed. 

 

“Also, due to the closure of the third mainland bridge, more people would make use of the waterways and your services will be needed more than ever. 

 

“You have a lot of role to play in terms of monitoring, pollution and regulations on the waterways. 

 

“It is therefore important to enroll at the institute for your training needs and update your skills because you stand to gain a lot,” he said. 

 

He said one of the new strategies to enhance their operations was the use of body worn cameras which was one of the achievements of the institute. 

 

Stressing the benefits of the body-worn camera, he said: 

 

“The idea is to change the way our security field officers operate. 

 

“Every field officer will be assigned a camera and they will be able to capture offenders and violators which will help the ministry of justice to prosecute their cases in courts based on the evidence produced from the body camera.

 

“It is also suitable for use at night and underwater,” he said. 

 

“Also, everything captured will be transmitted to the central database of the enforcement agency and officers will not be able to tamper with the device. With this, there will be more transparency and officers will carry out their duties as expected.”

 

He also urged the officers to uphold integrity, professionalism and ethics in the discharge of their duties. 


The General Manager LASWA, Mr Oluwadamilola Emmanuel, expressed enthusiasm towards the possibility of enrolling the Water Guards Corps at the institute for training.

 

 

“We need constant sensitization and education, hence the importance of today’s sensitization for the Water Guards Corp, LASWA.

 

“They have been taught basic enforcement strategies to adopt to ensure efficient delivery of water transport services.

 

“The use of body worn cameras would help improve our operations because there are always accounts of incidents without evidence to defend or back up our case, but with this, we will be able to defend our integrity.

The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI) has charged newly trained Central Business District (CBD) Enforcement Officers to uphold integrity and professionalism in the discharge of their duties.

The Director General LETI, Mr Ifalade Oyekan, made the call at the end of a three-day training held at the institute for new volunteers of the CBD Corps on Friday.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that 40 officers participated in the law enforcement officers proficiency training.

They were trained on various aspects of law enforcement, including public transportation and traffic management, emotional intelligence, investigation, human relations, first aid, physical agility and self defence.

Oyekan said that the training was in fulfillment of the institute’s mandate to equip law enforcement officers with 21st century professional standards and tactical proficiency needed for quality delivery of service.

He said that the activities of the institute were in line with the Lagos State Government THEMES agenda which are: Traffic Management and Transportation; Health and Environment; Education and Technology; Making Lagos a 21st Century state; Security and Governance.

“The Security of lives and property is paramount to the Lagos State government which was why this training was mandated and approved by Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu under the THEMES agenda.

“You have received training for three days in different aspects that will mould and shape your operation on the field.

“I urge you to be very diligent, respect senior officers, be courteous and most importantly, uphold your integrity because this will take you far in life,” he said.

Oyekan said the newly trained members would be monitored periodically to evaluate their performance on the field vis-a-vis the training received.

He also urged the officers to adhere strictly to safety guidelines of the NCDC and Lagos State government directives in the discharge of their duties during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The director general said that the institute would commence its  training programmes for other law enforcement agencies in the coming weeks, which would be done in accordance to the safety guidelines.

Also, the Director, Admin and Human Resources CBD, Mr Babatunde Onafowokan, expressed his satisfaction at the level of training and progress of the new volunteers.

Onafowokan urged them to take advantage of the training, imbibe what they have learned in their daily operations and be good representatives of the CBD.

“We just engaged this set of volunteers in January and we decided to bring them to LETI since it is saddled with the responsibility of training law enforcement officers to be well equipped for the job on the field.

“If we do not train them, we can not blame them if anything goes wrong.

“With what I witnessed during the training and the feedback, I must say I am impressed with what was achieved,” he said.

Onafowokan said the new officers would be deployed to Ikeja CBD to serve as law enforcement officers in traffic management, sanitation and security, and other enforcement functions.

He said the existing officers in Lagos Island district who had not been trained in years would also be registered for training in LETI soon.

Speaking to NAN, Ghiazat Oseni, one of the newly trained officers, said that though the training was tiring and stressful, it was insightful and impactful.

She expressed gratitude to the facilitators saying she had been equipped for the task ahead on the field.

Fouad Oki also commended the Lagos State Government for leading the charge to revolutionize Law Enforcement in Nigeria, saying Mr. Babjide Sanwo-Olu is behaving true to type as a seasoned Administrator.


The Body Worn Cameras were deployed to the representatives of the three agencies for their field operations as part of the practical session.
