CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1  BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

The word Police is derived from the Greek word ‘Polis’ meaning the part of non-ecclesiastical administration having to do with safety, health and order of state. The Greek politaria, meant the act of governing and regulating the welfare, security need and order of the city-state in the interest of the public.

Nigeria Police began with a (30) thirty members consular guard formed in Lagos colonies in 1861. In 1879, a one thousand two hundred (1,200) members armed paramilitary Hausa constabulary was formed.

Before describing this system in brief, it is relevant to observe that policing and police work did not start as a paid profession. It started as a noble, incorruptible profession with considerable responsibility and distinction. It was the justice of the peace system, which corrupted the Paris constable system.

Policing is referred to as measure and practice of securing the safety of members of community as well as ensuring conformity to the NORMS and VALUES of society. The Nigeria Police function and was responsible for internal security generally for supporting the prison, immigration, and custom service and for performing military duties within or outside Nigeria as directed.

The Nigeria police indeed fallen short of these responsibility because of the obvious ethical vacuum and inability to overcome their genuine moral challenges.

1.2  STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The Nigeria police force has over the years acquired a very negative image which has been a major problem to combat with, as the only force that has the enormous task of enforcing obedience of the law, prevention and detection and prevention of crime and protection of the lives and properties of the people in the country.

Overtime, the masses have come to distrust and disrespect the Nigeria police force due to some of its infamous activities; as a result, the public image of the NPF (Nigeria Police Force) has deteriorated into a negative one.

However, it is imperative for the Nigeria police force to enhance its image because the negative perception in which the public holds the police often hampers some of its activities.

This study therefore, intends to show how public relations can create a new public image for the Nigerian police force (NPF).

1.3  PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

  1. To discuss the various principles of public relations
  2. To analyze the public image of Nigeria police force
  3. To know some media and method of use in public relations as related to the NPF
  4. To discuss extensively about the challenges facing Police Area Command department in Kogi State

1.4  RESEARCH QUESTIONS

The questions which this study attempt to answers are as follows:

  1. What do you think are the reasons why police men collect bribes in the police station or road side?
  2. Do you think the Nigeria police force are performing their functions effectively?
  3. Why have police men not been following the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria? Is it because Nigeria is corrupt?
  4. Is it the low salary received by the Nigeria Police force that is making them not to function in their duties?
  5. Is the Nigeria police force truly your friend?

1.5  SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The research will highlight the masse’s perception of the police and the responsibilities of both the masses and the police to the society.

The research will be very useful to Nigeria police force as well as highlighting the problems facing the NPF
