The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI) has reiterated its unwavering commitment to its continued relationship and synergy with all Law Enforcement Agencies in the State.
The Director (LETI) Mrs Abiola Adeyinka made this declaration during an interactive session at the Vehicle Inspection Services office Ojodu today 7th, November 2023.
Mrs Adeyinka in her statement implored Law enforcement Officers to imbibe good relationships with the public in order to have a hitch free patrol and make Lagos a friendly State.
She noted that the Agency in its next edition of mandatory training exercise for officers will make available copies of enforcement laws in order to assist them in their everyday duties.
The Director therefore stressed on the body worn cameras introduced by the State and its importance to all Law enforcement agencies in carrying out their day to day activities adding that this will enable officers to have facts of events while carrying out their duties.
Responding, Engr Akin- George Fashola, Director ( VIS) in his words, said the Agency is also committed to LETI and is ready to work hand in hand with the agency in order to bring Lagos State to an enviable stage. He, however advised LETI to integrate technology usage during training in order for officers to have hitch free patrol on the roads.
Engr. Kayode Oladesu (Director, Operations) in his reaction, stated that LETI is a partner to VIS and that even with technology, officers needs to go out to enforce law because some people still go against the law. He noted that people do not pay fines as at when due, they move with dilapidated vehicles and with these, officers atimes do home arrest for non- payment of fines and also at point of renewal.
Engr. Fashola however said Lagos State will not rest on its oars until the Agency perfects its technology usage on road worthiness.
During the session, the management staff of LETI were taken across all the facilities of the VIS and most importantly, their camera room to show the operations of VIS and vehicles on Lagos State roads.
