Impunity; Police launches rebranded SARS, CRU  
Worried by the public perception of the Nigerian Police with regards to impunity which often results in legal tussle, the Police has launched the rebranded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and the newly established Nigerian Police Force (NPF) Complaint Response Unit (CRU).
In a statement issued by Acting ACP Olabisi Kolawole, Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, it said the Inspector-General of Police Solomon E. Arase, in his determination to take the Nigeria Police Force to a greater height on November 13, 2015, at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, launched the rebranded SARS and CRU.
The IGP is said to have expressed concern over the worrisome perception by members of the public of unprofessional conduct and abuses of human rights orchestrated by some of its operatives which have led to civil litigations and its attendant consequences.
“Also, in line with the IGP’s cardinal principle of accountability, which is the watchword for this administration, emphasized on Information and Communication Technology to strengthen its accountability mechanism, a workable Complaint Response Unit (CRU) is established.
“He acknowledged that the newly established CRU will act as a central ICT-driven public complaint unit that will galvanize all forms of complaints from members of the public and the positive feedback from the Police.
The IGP who commended members of SARS for their unflinching loyalty and operational doggedness over the years called for a more professional and dedicated efforts at meeting global standards. He enjoined the new set of SARS operatives to be diligent and proactive in their dealings with members of the society, noting that they must eschew corruption and any unprofessional behaviour that will jeopardise public trust and confidence” the statement said.
