ABSTRACT
Law enforcement provides an important place in all democracies and in every society or states. The police are the entry point into the criminal justice system and the effectiveness of the system resides in the effectiveness of the police systems. Federal system presupposes that each constituent parts of the federation such as the states, municipalities and federal government have their autonomy for their daily affairs, defense, military and others are vested with the federal government.
Nigeria practices a centralized police system unlike the united states of America where there is no centralized police system or chain of command. Those who oppose the call for the establishment of state police has it that it will bring about abuse of power by state government but then the advantages far outweighs the disadvantages since every excesses can be curtailed through adequate control.
The stated hypothesis were tested with chi-square at 0.05 level of significance and it was observed that there were significant difference among the various effects of establishing a state police with respect to the practice of federalism in Nigeria. This research study however concludes that the call for state police is necessary and will become a plausible way forward to a true federal arrangement in Nigeria.
