The Anambra State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the Association of Licenced Private Security Practitioners of Nigeria (ALPSPN), Anambra State chapter, today, signed a pact that would make the NSCDC modify and regulate private security training programmes in the state.

The state commandant of the corps, David Bille, told newsmen after the meeting in Awka that the measure became necessary to ensure standard practices in the operations of private security agencies in the state.

 While calling on members to demonstrate commitment towards participating in the association’s plans and actions, Bille challenged them to help in eliminating quackery in the industry through proper vetting of staff and better remuneration packages.

“I appreciate the association for prompt renewal of their operating licences, and I promise to work out an amicable solution in the conflicting areas of their operations with the state vigilante group,” he said.

A member of the association, Maduka Atuenyi, said:

“The association also appealed to the state commandant to assist us in security coverage aimed at enforcing the Personal Security Identification (PSID) where people of questionable character will be flushed out from the industry to restore confidence of clients based on integrity and trust reposed on them.
“The association also resolved to form a joint task force, comprising the state chapter of the association and NSCDC in the state.”
