FACTORS IMPEDING THE EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE NIGERIA POLICE FORCE IN THE MAINTENANCE OF LAW AND ORDER
Abstract: The Police Force in Nigeria maintains law and order as part of their duties. Unfortunately, the citizens have had unpalatable experiences and stories to tell about the escapades of the Police while carrying out their duties. There is no gain saying the fact that the performance of Nigeria Police Force is unsatisfactory due partly to integrity issues and inadequate funding. Their attitude seems to reflect the society and environment in which they operate, and this has led to a lot of criticisms that have reached a dangerous height. The work employs doctrinal and content analysis of relevant literature in this area. This paper identifies some factors that impede the efficiency and effectiveness of the Police Force in Nigeria in the maintenance of law and order. It finds that even though their efficiency and effectiveness are hindered by so many problems, there is still hope of the Police Force attaining the desired focus. For example, with the establishment of a Police Trust Fund, with credible and competent people in charge, law abiding citizens of Nigeria may begin to experience a more professional, responsible and responsive Police Force with a changed narrative.
