Community policing has been given a boost, following the training of security groups to combat crime in Lagos State.
The two day workshop was organised by the Justice For All (J4A), in collaboration with the DFID.
More than twenty personnel from the Neighborhood Watch, Vigilantes and other community-based outfits from the Agege local government council received intensive training from seasoned security experts, among whom was the former commissioner for police, Frank Odita.
