Selling police uniforms in the open market is against the police rules and regulations and the Police are tired of it.

So, if you are one of those making money off the business, the Nigeria Police Force is ready to arrest and prosecute you.

“Anybody found selling police uniforms in the open market would be arrested and prosecuted because it is against the police rules and regulations,” CSP Moshood Jimoh said.

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), said that it would be wrong for any policeman in the rank and file and Inspector category to say that he or she obtained uniforms from the open market.

“It is not correct. I wouldn’t know who you must have spoken with, but it is not the practice in the Nigeria Police Force for policemen to obtain their uniforms from the open market,” he said.

He explained that Inspectors and rank and rifle under this category are entitled to be issued uniforms by the Nigeria Police Force.

The spokesman said that senior police officers were expected to buy their uniforms from the officers’ shop of the force.

“The rank and file are not to buy their uniforms whether outside or within the force.

“If anybody wants additional uniforms aside the ones issued, he or she does not have to go to the open market to buy.

He said that uniforms allowances were already paid to officers from the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police to the rank of Inspector-General of Police.

He added that Inspectors and rank and file are being issued uniforms periodically through their station officers and the Quartermaster of their various commands with the approval of the Inspector-General of Police.
