Comprehensive Training Program Prepares Officers for Stringent Compliance Measures

In a significant move to bolster internal security and combat criminal activities facilitated by the misuse of tinted glass, the Nigeria Police Force has finalized its review of the issuance of tinted glass permits, previously banned in June 2022. The ban stemmed from widespread concerns regarding tinted glass’s involvement in aiding various heinous crimes, including kidnapping, armed robbery, illegal firearm transportation, and human trafficking.

In a statement issued by ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi Force Public Relations Officer, Force HQ Abuja, there are plans to lift the ban , the Police Force is implementing stringent measures to prevent abuse and ensure strict compliance with guidelines governing the issuance and use of tinted glass permits. As part of this initiative, ICT Analysts and Enforcement Officers nationwide are scheduled to undergo comprehensive training on February 29, 2024, ahead of the reintroduction of tinted glass permit issuance.

The training aims to equip ICT Analysts and Enforcement Officers with the necessary skills and knowledge to regulate the registration process, assist registrants on the use of the portal as needed, address public complaints, and enforce compliance effectively. It will focus on familiarizing participants with the intricacies of the new guidelines, emphasizing the delicate balance between public safety, individual freedoms, and national security.

The proposed tinted glass permit will feature distinctive elements designed to enhance enforcement efficiency and security. These include a QR code linked to a central database for real-time verification, unique serial numbers associated with vehicle and owner details, and a digital hologram ensuring authenticity and integrity, among other measures.
