IGP Urges Nigerians to use the ‘Rescue Me App’ in emergencies.

“The ‘NPF Rescue Me App’ is available on both the ‘Android’ and ‘ios’ application stores for free downloads and usage.”



A statement by the Force’s Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed that the mobile application provides a platform for citizens to quickly alert the Police Force in emergency situations.

Egbetokun, who noted that the initiative aims to facilitate prompt response and assistance, explained that it aligned with the vision of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to stimulate more robust community engagement.

The statement quoted the IGP as saying, “The ‘NPF Rescue Me App’ is available on both the ‘Android’ and ‘ios’ application stores for free downloads and usage.”

Egbetokun made this known while speaking on the sidelines of a tour of the National Command and Control Centre (C4i) facility and the Nigeria Police Crime and Incidence Database Centre (NPCIDC) at the Louis Edet House, Force Headquarters, Abuja, on Saturday, July 8, 2023.

Adejobi stated that the tours emphasised the IGP’s commitment to integrating innovative policing strategies into the NPF.

During the tour, the IGP also announced that a surveillance application that would capture motor parks, hotels, and other public places in the country, is in the works.

The police boss added that the Force also uses a digital system to collect and manage data about all domestic workers with verified employment histories.

He added that the proposed system would complement the Digitalised Central Motor Registry, which is already in operation, stating that the innovation will be rolled out before the year runs out.

The IGP also reiterated the efforts of the Force in deploying cutting-edge technologies and urged officers to fully latch on to these tools to enhance their operations and improve service delivery to the citizens.

The statement partly read, “Besides the Digitalised Central Motor Registry, which is already operational, the NPF is working on innovating other areas paramount to security.

“Some of these which would be unveiled within the year include the Police Mobile Security Surveillance, which will, among other things, capture all motor parks, commercial drivers operating daily in Nigeria, and passengers plying various routes, including hotel lodging data; and the Domestic Help Registration to create and manage centrally accessible data of all domestic help with verifiable previous employment data.”
