LETI visits VIS office, reiterates commitment to law enforcement, stressed the importance of body-worn cameras.
The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI) has implored Law Enforcement Officers in the state to imbibe good relationships with the public to have hitch-free patrol and make Lagos a friendly State.
The Director of LETI, Mrs. Abiola Adeyinka, stated this during a working visit to the Vehicle Inspection Services (VIS) Office, Ojodu on Wednesday, where she reiterated commitments to law enforcement agencies in the state.
She noted that the Agency, in its next edition of a mandatory training exercise for officers, will make available copies of enforcement laws to assist them in their daily duties.
She also stressed the importance of the body-worn cameras introduced by the State Government to all Law enforcement agencies in carrying out their day-to-day activities, adding that this will enable officers to have facts of events while carrying out their duties.
Responding, the Director of VIS, Engr. Akin-George Fashola said the Agency is committed and ready to work hand-in-hand with the agency to bring sanity to our roads and uplift Lagos State to an enviable stage.
Advising LETI to integrate technology usage during training so officers can have a hitch-free patrol on the roads, Engr. Fashola maintained that the State Government will not rest on its oars until the Agency perfects its technology usage on roadworthiness.
On his part, Engr. Kayode Oladesu, Director of Operations, stated that LETI is a partner to VIS and that even with technology, officers need to go out to enforce laws because some people are in the habit of contracting stipulated laws.
He noted that people do not pay fines when due, move with dilapidated vehicles and sometimes, officers do home arrests for non-payment of fines and also at the point of renewal.
During her visit, the Director of LETI and the management staff of the Agency inspected facilities at the VIS and as well as their camera room to observe the operations of VIS on Lagos State roads.
