By Emem Idio

The Commissioner of Police, Bayelsa State Command, Mr. Austin Iwar, has warned criminals in the state that the command under his leadership would not tolerate criminality.  Iwar, who gave the warning during his maiden press briefing and decoration of 36 newly promoted officers at the Police Officers Mess in Yenagoa yesterday, said as part of improving the security situation in the state, the police would embrace community policing.

He said:”The police command under my leadership will ensure that human rights  are never violated under any circumstance. Hence, we will not hesitate to apply appropriate sanction on officers found wanting. Acts of corruption will be decisively dealt with. I have directed the immediate strengthening of all police oversight units to check the activities of personnel.”
