The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Dr Solomon Arase, has stated that the mentally mobile police officers can disscharge their duties optimally.
Arase made this known in a statement by the Head of Press and Public Relations of PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to Ani, Arase spoke when he paid a courtesy visit to the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede.
Arase said the focus of discussion during the visit was on the process of engaging JAMB to conduct Computer Based Tests for applicants seeking employment into Constable Cadre of the Nigeria Police.
He said the Police Force he joined 42 years ago was knowledge-based with officers who could relate with the public and engender love and confidence.
“If the commission can get 50 per cent high flyers with this recruitment, the progression to a better and effective police service would have started.
“Mentally mobile policemen will have self-confidence and capable of discharging their duties creditably,” Arase said.
