Launch of refurbished Central Planning and Training Unit (CPTU) Facility at Police Staff College, Jos
May 24, 2023
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and the Police Reform and Transformation Office (PORTO) hosted the launch of the refurbished Central Planning and Training Unit (CPTU) in Jos, Plateau State on 24 May 2023. This initiative was executed under the Supporting Police Reform Processes in Nigeria (SPRPiN) project, implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Security Sector Reform Foundation (GS-Foundation) in collaboration with PORTO, CLEEN Foundation, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), and the Office of the Chief of Staff to the President.
This renovation is part of many other initiatives supporting reforms of the NPF of which the Department of Training and Development (DTD) has been a beneficiary. The initiative ensures that the Nigeria Police Force receives cutting edge training, which is essential to promoting enhanced skills, professionalism, greater accountability, and a safer Nigeria.
To determine the state of facilities, a comprehensive needs assessment was conducted at all training colleges and schools in collaboration with UNDP and PORTO. Findings suggested the need for an upgrade of CPTU facilities, which is essential to improving policing in Nigeria. Donations by the Supporting Police Reform Processes in Nigeria (SPRPiN) project began in October 2022, while refurbishment of the facility started in April 2023. In addition to the renovation efforts, the SPRPiN project donated equipment and furniture valued at $120,000 to the Central Planning and Training Unit (CPTU).
The Supporting Police Reform Processes in Nigeria project is implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Security Sector Reform Foundation (GS-F) in collaboration with the Office of the Chief of Staff to the President, the Police Reform and Transformation Office (PORTO), and the Nigeria Police Force (NPF). The project contributes to implementing the Nigerian Government’s police reform initiative presented in the President’s “A New Vision for Policing in Nigeria: Framework for the Presidential Police Reform Roadmap”.
