Adamu said the police have achieved major successes in addressing security and safety threats in recent times which is as the result of the launch of ‘Operation Puff Adder’.

“It is a citizen-centred and community policing approach which will lead to more sustainable successes in the management of internal safety and security threats,” he said.

Going further, the model of the community policing will involve the establishment and utilisation of the special constables.

This, according to him, is mirrored after the police community support officers standard in the United Kingdom policing architecture.
