…also through the app other forms of crime can be reported
Any unlawful activity by Nigerian policemen can now be reported via an app, Usman Alkali Baba, the Inspector-General of Police, has revealed.
Citizens are also enjoined to report emergencies, criminal activities, and professional misconducts of police officers via its ‘NPF Rescue Me’ mobile application.
Baba said that the NPF Rescue Me App, which is a great improvement, redefines security and personalizes policing, enabling android and ios users to download the app from the various app stores, registering with their details and having access to a variety of features including emergency services, crime reporting, navigation, ambulances services, amongst others.
The application also has an emergency button which when depressed alerts operatives at the Nigeria Police National Command and Control Centre who would immediately send out the required assistance to victims irrespective of their locations within the country.
The IGP while encouraging members of the public to download the application into their carry along gadgets, and input some required information for improved services and their personal safety, reiterates that his administration is poised to exploring the use of cutting-edge technology to take combatting crime and responding to emergency situations to an entirely new level.
