The Nigerian Police Force, or NPF, is the principal security agency of Nigeria and the main law enforcement body. 

Originally established in 1930, the force was characterized by its motto, “Police is Your Friend.” 

Its flag is striped horizontally, with blue, yellow, and green colors.

 The security system allows for a single police command to be established in every state in Nigeria. 

In all, there are 36 commands in each of Nigeria’s 36 states. 

In addition to the twelve (12) commands, there are seven different administrative branches that administer each zone. 

With more than 2000 police stations located throughout the country, there is a hierarchical structure to the police system. 

Below is a breakdown of the Nigerian Police Force’s ranks.

Incentives and Allowances of the Nigerian Police Force

As a member of the Nigerian Police Force, you are usually eligible for certain benefits such as a housing allowance and health insurance. 

Families of officers who die while serving the country are also compensated. 

As with other sectors of the country, the police department suffers many setbacks, and their members do not receive many benefits. 

Whenever they are given, they are merely ceremonial displays, while the supposed beneficiaries still complain that their needs weren’t met.
