The Anambra state commissioner of Police CP Hassan Karma on Wednesday, September 16, 2015 eulogized Divisional Police Officer in charge of Awada station CSP Dimale Joseph for his leadership style worthy of emulation.

            The commissioner made the commendation while addressing the officers of the station during his tour of inspection to Awada division.

            According to him, since he started touring police stations recently it was only Awada Division that recorded an exceptional turn out. “Not only that the officers gathered in their large numbers to receive him, they conducted themselves very well appearing in sparkling uniforms”, he stated.

            While eulogizing the efforts and the commitments of the Nigerian Police in protecting lives and property through fighting crime, the Commissioner charged the residents of Awada to appreciate the effort of the police in their area by assisting them in transforming the station.

            Awada Police Station he said needed a face lift. “The job of building a police station and getting it well equipped should not be left only in the hands of the government since the services they offer are for everyone. Also the protection of life and property is everybody business. On this note, it is sacrosanct that those who are the beneficiaries of police services should rise to the challenge and assist the police in doing the job to a satisfactory level.

            Apart from helping to build a station, every other stakeholders including Landlord Associations, Red Cross, Vigilante Groups and others should redouble their efforts in ensuring that information about existence of criminals and bad eggs in the society are handed over to the police for proper action.”

            The commissioner while commending the contributions of the Vigilante in securing the environment and their mutual cooperation with the police in combating crime urged them not to abuse the privileges given to them as security agents. “Do not use the arms to intimidate innocent citizens because when you are caught, we will disown you. Ensure that you operate within your community and never cross the boundary. Always remember you are under the supervision of the DPO in charge of your area” he advised.

            The chairman P.C.R.C Awada Division Prince Nathan Ezeabasili and the chairman Ugwuagba Landlord Association Chief Osita Orji (Cardinal) and other chairmen of Landlord Associations in the area who spoke at the event rained accolades on the D.P.O Dimale Joseph for his giant strides in the area of crime control, adding that the D.P.O and men of police force Awada are trying their possible best in discharging their duties to fish out bad eggs in the area.

            “Residents in Awada and it’s environ do sleep well both day and night. Snatching of bags by the thieves has drastically reduced”, they disclosed.

            The D.P.O. Dimale Joseph earlier in his address appreciated the commissioner for visiting them, stating that his presence has encouraged and energized them.

            He disclosed that with the support of the various Landlord cum Tenant Associations coupled with the unflinching cooperation of the various Vigilantes outfit and the discipline, dedication and hard work of all the police officers in the division, crime wave has been relatively low.

            “Despite the low crime wave, some of the prevailing cases in Awada include stealing, assault, wounding and threat to life. We are also experiencing some constraints which include insufficient man power, inadequate patrol vehicles, lack of Barrack accommodation, poor /rugged network of road within the division and colossal erosion menace”, he stated.

            The D.P.O further commended the P.C.R.C members, Landlord Associations, Vigilante Groups for their various contributions.
