Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Wednesday launched body cameras for security agencies in the effort to enhance security and safety in the state.
The governor during the unveiling at the Government House in Alausa announced that law enforcement officers in the state will now make use of body cameras while discharging their duties.
He said the use of the cameras will help provide first-hand evidence in the case of any wrongdoing.
“To enhance public safety and increase investors’ confidence, I approved the use of body cameras and mass training of its use for law enforcement personnel in Lagos.
“This move will increase the transparency and accountability in the activities of our law enforcement agencies,” Sanwo-Olu announced in a Twitter post, sharing pictures from the event.
The governor also approved mass training for the state’s law enforcement personnel on the use of body-worn cameras, ahead of the deployment of the digital tools for security operations across the state.
The three-day training, to begin in May, will be facilitated by the Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI), headed by Falade Oyekan.
After the training, all state-funded law enforcement officers would be mandated to wear body cameras for their operations.
