The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has commended a female officer, Inspector Justina Rita Omogbai, attached to the Traffic Unit of the Sabo Divisional Headquarters in Lagos State, for her commitment and acts of professionalism displayed in the course of her traffic duties.
Also, for positively representing the Force amongst the community, particularly to school children crossing the road at her duty post, by taking personal steps to ensure they are properly dressed and safe while heading to and from school.
The commendedation was contained in a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Tuesday.
The NPF noted that her gesture aligns with the Community Policing tenets and the concept of “Catching Them Young”, as the formative age is very vital to training children to be law-abiding and compliant with regulations.
The Force added that her singular action brings to their memories the standard practice of Nigeria Police Traffic Officers.
While commending the officer, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba charged all officers and men to emulate her good conduct and be shining examples in their respective jurisdictions.
He equally tasked officers to be law-abiding even as they sow the seed of appropriate civic behaviour in the minds and hearts of members of their communities, particularly the young ones, who can serve as evangelists of values and good potentials of the NPF, contrary to the present erroneous perception.
Inspector Omogbai’s admirable conduct went viral after a Nigerian who had paid close attention to her daily routine posted about it with an accompanying photograph on LinkedIn, the business and employment-focused social media platform.
