The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has reiterated its efforts to reduce road crashes in the country through intelligence patrol.
Zonal Commanding Officer in charge of Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara states, Mr. Osas Osadebamwen, disclosed this during the 2018 Zonal Retreat in Sokoto on Monday.
The participants were drawn from the sectors and zonal commands.
Osadebamwen noted that the time had come for personnel to adopt patrolling system that is base on intelligent gathering.
He said, “This retreat was in line with the commission’s efforts to ensure safety of both its personnel and road users, especially in the wake of prevailing insecurity in some part of the country.
“There is a need for us to keep abreast of issues of intelligence. Today’s retreat will be looking at intelligence based patrol. It is a capacity building where we train the trainers. The officers in turn train personnel in their respective capacities.”
The FRSC zonal boss acknowledged the security threats facing personnel during the discharge of their duties, saying “the FRSC is unrelenting to ensure safety of its personnel.”
