IGP urges Nigerians to report police officers, crime via Police mobile app

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has said Nigerians can now report emergencies, criminal activities, and professional misconducts of police officers via its ‘NPF Rescue Me’ mobile application.

The IGP noted that the NPF’s App redefines security and personalizes policing, enabling Android and iOS phone users to download the app from the various app stores, register with their details, and have 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 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 emergencies to an entirely new level.
