THE Chairman of the Police Service Commission, PSC, Alhaji Musiliu Smith, Tuesday, expressed worry over the current image of the Nigeria Police warning that the Commission will not hesitate to flush out any policeman found culpable of indiscipline and incompetence.

Alhaji Smith said this, in Abuja, when he received  a delegation from the West African Conflict and Security Team from the British High Commission and the United States Embassy in Nigeria.

While he stressed that recruitment and promotion in the force will now be based on competence, the PSC Chairman disclosed that the Commission will soon hold a retreat to set an agenda for its work.

His words: “The Nigeria Police is getting a lot of bashing; we are aware of our responsibility to sanitize the place and we are going to ensure that recruitment and promotion will henceforth be based on established rules and majorly on competence.

“We have a very good team, we are focused, we are already discussing on solutions and the best ways to improve the police and ensure obedience to law and order. We will maintain a close and cordial relationship with your team.”

He requested for assistance from the delegation in the area of building a Police Service Commission Database to enable the Commission have a reliable database to manage the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force.

The delegation from the West African Conflict and Security Team were represented by Katrina Aitken-Laird, Security, and Justice Adviser, British High Commission and Michael Bonner, Senior Policy Advisor, United States Embassy.
