A total of 1,200 policemen serving in Anambra State, who were recently promoted by the Police Service Commission (PSC), were on Wednesday decorated with their new ranks by the Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Garba Umar, at the state command. 

Addressing the newly promoted officers at the state police headquarters in Awka, the CP charged them to improve on their duties adding that the promotion was meant to spur them. 

He observed that decoration with new ranks was usually a memorable day in which every policeman looked forward to.

While advising them to live up to expectation, Umar said: “The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris feels that you are worthy to be elevated due to your hard work, professionalism and zero tolerance to corruption following recommendation by the Police Service Commission (PSC).

“The IG expects you to put in your best by shunning corruption and other vices when dealing with the public.

“You must remain humble in the discharge of your duties and we hope this promotion will serve as morale booster for you to carry out your duties.

“The beauty of any country is measured through the behaviour of her police and I enjoin you to continue to exhibit good image for the police at all times.”

The CP urged those who were yet to be promoted to be patient, saying that theirs would soon come.

The promotion marks the highest number of policemen to have been promoted at a time in the state.
