The Police Service Commission PSC has frowned at what it describes as the lopsided and crooked recruitment and deployments by the Nigeria Police Force in which the North-East and South-East regions of the country are under-represented, advising the Inspector General of Police Usman Alkali Baba to be guided.

Spokesman of PSC, Ikechukwu Ani in a statement at the weekend called for adequate representation of women in both management and tactical levels of deployment, adding that new policy guidelines on deployment of Assistant Inspectors General of Police AIGs, police commissioners CPS and tactical commanders to zonal and state commands as well as on gender sensitivity have been approved.

The new policy guidelines, therefore, provide that all geo-political zones must have 15 percent representation in the deployment of the AIGS, CPS, and posting of commanding officers, including ensuring equity in terms of religion and ethnicity.

It also provides that at least three state commands out of the 37 commands must have female police officers as their commissioners of police and out of the seventeen zonal headquarters, at least one zone must have a female Assistant Inspector General of police to head the zone.
