The Nigeria Police, formerly known as the Nigerian Police Force, is a law enforcement body in charge of safeguarding the country’s peace and harmony.
The entire number of police officers is approximately 372,000, but the federal government has approved an increase to approximately 650,000 police officers due to an insufficient number that cannot halt all criminal cases. This entails adding 280,000 to their current total.
The Nigeria police force was founded in 1930 and was previously separated into two commands: the Northern Nigeria Police and the Southern Nigeria Police. It now has 36 commands distributed around the country.
With nearly 2000 police stations in Nigeria, the 36 teams are divided into 12 zones that are managed by the 7 administrative arms. The Nigeria Police Force was founded by officers from Imo State. However, various arms of the Nigeria Police Force have been formed since then.
The remuneration of a Nigerian police officer is determined by his or her level and grade.
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is a massive organization that is currently led by IGP Ibrahim Idris.
The Police Mobile Force, which was developed to combat riots across Nigeria and is controlled by the Inspector General of Police, is another arm of the Nigeria Police.
