Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Usman Baba has invalidated the existing Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC) Identity Card (ID) with effect from December 2022.
In a statement issued weekend in Abuja, Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO) CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi said the directive was in line with the IGP’s zeal to sanitise and standardise all sectors including the PCRC.
He said: “The IGP has also ordered the redesign and re-issuance of new PCRC ID cards from the Force Headquarters, Abuja, and through judicious screening of membership across board.
“The IGP hereby directs all eligible members of PCRC nationwide to contact the offices of the various zonal, command and formation’s PCRC Chairmen as well as the Police Public Relations Officers (PPROs) of their zones, commands and formations, respectively, to obtain new forms for processing the newly approved ID Card.
“The IGP equally directs that hence, anyone found parading himself with the invalidated PCRC ID card should be arrested and prosecuted.”
