The Oyo State Command of the Nigerian Civil Defense and Security Corps (NSCDC) on Tuesday began training 200 officers in the use of closed circuit television (CCTV) to combat insecurity.
NSCDC state commander Mr. Iskilu Akinsanya, who declared the training open in Ibadan, said it had become necessary due to the increasing crime rate in society.
He said the training would help officers use CCTV for surveillance and analysis of situations to tackle insecurity in the state.
According to him, security concerns have become very dynamic and the days when officers only pursue criminals with guns are over.
He said security agencies must embrace the use of technology in order to effectively tackle the growing insecurity in society.
Akinsanya said it was essential for officers and men to be aware of their responsibilities and to be able to gather and analyze information through the use of technology.
The commander asked the officers to take advantage of the training and pass on the acquired knowledge to other officers in their different units.
“The General Commander (CG) of the NSCDC, Abubakar Audi, stressed that all the controls in the country will be technologically connected.
“So from the Oyo State Command, we will contact them and directly establish with them what is happening in the State and that is why the training is very mandatory and important.
“At the end of the training, we expect the officers to be able to analyze, digest any information obtained with precision,” Akinsanya said.
Also speaking, the NSCDC training chief in Oyo State, Deputy Corps Commander (ACC) Olusola Omotajo, said the training would improve the performance of officers in the field.
Omotajo said the training will educate officers on how to connect video surveillance to internet surveillance and be able to monitor events in the company.
According to him, there are certain CCTV protocols which are also wireless and can be monitored on the phone with the installation of the apps.
Omotajo said that it is very important for all security agencies to acquire the knowledge necessary to be able to know the events of the company and to nip crime in the bud. (NOPE)
