By Eric Ojo, Abuja

The Police Service Commission (PSC) today began its 8th Plenary Meeting to deliberate on pending issues and take policy decisions.

The virtual Meeting powered by Google zoom which is presided over by the Commission’s Chairman, Musiliu Smith, a retired Inspector General of Police, will be rounded off on Thursday, 11th of June.

The 8th Plenary Meeting earlier scheduled for Tuesday, 24th and Wednesday 25th March 2020 was put off indefinitely. The suspension was in accordance with the containment/safety measures of the Federal Government in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Plenary Meeting is the highest decision making body of the PSC and it considers recommendations from its different Standing Committees.

According to a statement issued on Tuesday by the Head of Press and Public Relations Unit of the Commission, Ikechukwu Ani, the Meeting is expected to take far reaching decisions on pending Police Disciplinary Cases, Police promotions, recommendations on concluded Police investigations and several other pending matters.

The statement added that the Commission has complied with the directives of the Federal Government on the requirements for effective opening of government offices.

“The PSC has since set up a PSC COVID-19 Committee and the Committee has ensured full compliance with the directives and advice on the Covid-19 pandemic preventive measures.

“These requirements are; social distancing in offices; hand washing and sanitation facilities at entrance and strategic points and provision of Infrared thermometers at entrances for temperature check”, the statement further explained.

The Committee, according to the statement, is currently in the second phase of sensitization of staff on how to personalize these measures as required by the Presidential Task Force especially with the rate of community spread.
