The Police Commissioner in Jigawa, Mr Kayode Theophilus, has warned officers and men of the command to desist from any act of indiscipline and criminality.
Theophilus gave the warning while addressing policemen in Kirikasama Divisional Police Office in Jigawa on Friday.
He said that the police were supposed to be outstanding, well-behaved and exhibit good characters at all times.
The police chief said that henceforth, local government council chairmen and traditional rulers in the state would evaluate the performance of officers and men posted to their respective areas.
“Our main duty is to protect lives and property at all times and we must do that with all sense of discipline and dedication.”
He said that any policeman found involved in any social vice would be punished accordingly.
Later at a stakeholders' meeting, the commissioner also advised people to report any police officer and men involved in any act of criminality in the area.
