A PERSPECTIVE OF PUBLIC RELATIONS IN THE QUEST TO ELIMINATE CORRUPTION BY THE NIGERIA POLICE
This study examined a perspective of public relations in the quest to eliminate corruption by the Nigeria Police. To achieve the purpose of this study, the researcher formulated four (4) objectives of the study and four (4) research questions. The research design used for this study is the descriptive survey design. The population of the study comprises all the Police Officers serving in Rivers State Command with a total population size of fifteen thousand, three hundred (15,300) Police Officers. The researcher used purposive sampling technique with a sample size of three hundred and seventy five (375) Police Officers. The instrument used for this study is structured questionnaire. The dissertation supervisor and two (2) other senior lecturers in the department were used to validate the instrument. To ensure the reliability of the instrument, test re-test method was used and Pearson Product Moment Correlation was used to obtain the reliability coefficient value of 0.85. The researcher administered the instrument directly to the respondents. To analyse the data collected, frequency table and weighted mean score were used. Based on the analyses, the study revealed that there is high level of awareness given to the fight against corruption by the public relations department of the Nigeria Police. The findings also showed that there is no sign of sincerity by the Public Relations Department of the Nigeria Police on the elimination of corruption. The study still indicates that elimination of corruption could not be achieved by the Public Relations Department of the Nigeria Police because the Police organisation is also corrupt. However, the researcher recommends that: There is need for training and retraining of the Public Relation Officers of the Nigeria Police. Nigeria Police should ensure that all their Public Relations Department are proactive and result oriented in the elimination of corruption, government and police management should organize workshops and conferences to orient the general public on the elimination of corruption and the politicians, public office holders and Police Officers who found corrupt should be dealt with.
