By Jide Afolabi, Jos

The Nigeria Police, Plateau State Command, Jos, has deployed 2046 police personnel to prevent crime before, during and after this yuletide season and assured members of the public a crime-free yuletide.

This was revealed by DSP Mathias Tyopev Terna, Police Public Relations Officer, Plateau State Command in a press release issued today, Monday, a copy of which was sent to CityMirrorNews.

Tyopev said, “As such, a total of two thousand and forty-six (2046) Police personnel have been carefully selected, trained and deployed to protect lives and property of members of the public. The Police are also in synergy with other security agencies in the State to ensure a crime-free yuletide season.”

“In line with the above, the Command has professionally positioned its patrol vehicles in strategic areas day and night so as to respond promptly to distress calls from members of the society.”

However, the Command restated its earlier ban on the use of fireworks, bangers, knockouts etc. noting that, “officers and men are out to make sure that both Christmas and New Year activities are celebrated without any hitches and distraction. Consequently, we plead with parents/guardians to help guide their children and wards to be law abiding.”

Tyopev enjoined members of the public to board vehicles only in the designated parks in the state and avoid boarding on the high way in order not to fall for the criminal antics who operate outside the parks.
