Community Policing in South-West Nigeria: Finding a Nexus between the Police and the People
Olusegun, Omowunmi J.
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n23 p29-35 2016
The joint efforts of the police and the communities in south-west Nigeria to tackle the alarming rates of crime in various societies has over the year been adopted as a strategic way of curbing crime in Nigeria. This paper examines the divergent views of community policing in south-west Nigeria. The paper is empirical in nature though related textbooks, journals, and other publication were consulted. The perception of the police and the community remain the fact that the police force alone given their observable inadequacies cannot successfully tackle crimes in the society without adequate supports of the members of the community.
