The Commissioner of Police, Delta State Command, Olufemi Abaniwonda, has established a Complaint Response Unit (CRU) to curb police misconduct and abuse of fundamental human rights of citizens.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Edafe Bright, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), in a statement issued Tuesday, said the unit was established in line with the directive from the Inspector General of Police (IG), Kayode Egbetokun.

He disclosed that the CRU department will work directly under the supervision of the Police Public Relations officer of the command to checkmate the excesses and unprofessional conduct and maintain the highest standards of professionalism in the organization.

Edafe said the CP, who understands the need to maintain the highest standards of professionalism in the organization, seeks to rectify any excesses or inappropriate behaviour demonstrated by the police officers and men of the command.

“On this note, the public can channel all complaints and relevant information on police actions either by visiting the CRU office at the command Headquarters.

“Summarily, CP Abaniwonda Olufemi while reaffirming his zero tolerance to the abuse of authorities, added that the IGP has shown an unwavering zeal to fight corruption and unprofessionalism, hence he will not hesitate to promptly sanction any erring officer,” he said.

Edafe therefore encouraged the public to assist in the efficient execution of curbing misconduct, excesses and unprofessionalism among police officers in the state, by collaborating closely with the Police Command Complaint Response Unit.

“He similarly stressed that the command is unwavering in its commitment to uphold an environment of transparency, accountability, and the protection of citizens’ rights in the discharge of duties, as this will further help build public trust and promote a positive working relationship between the police and the people,” he added.
