(Video) Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu approves wearing of body cameras by law enforcement officers

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday unveiled body-worn cameras for security agencies in the effort to enhance security and safety in the state.



He wrote on Twitter: "To enhance public safety and increase investors confidence, I approved the use of body cameras and mass training of its use for law enforcement personnel in Lagos.
This move will increase the transparency and accountability in the activities of our law enforcement agencies. 

"The security challenges in different parts of the country are worrisome, but with proactive action, use of modern technological tools, and well-trained and intelligent personnel, we will successfully combat many of these challenges.
The goal is a safer Lagos #ForAGreaterLagos."

Mr Sanwo-Olu said during the unveiling ceremony, at Lagos House, Ikeja, that the use of the cameras would improve transparency and accountability in the activities of law enforcement agencies.
He said the devices would help to put the state government in a better position to respond to security challenges in real-time.

The governor also approved mass training for the state’s law enforcement personnel on the use of the body-worn cameras, ahead of the deployment of the digital tools for security operations across the state.

After the training, all state-funded law enforcement officers would be mandated to wear body cameras for their operations.

According to Mr Sanwo-Olu, the provision of adequate security is a key pillar of the administration’s T.H.E.M.E.S. agenda, and the initiative reflects the government’s resolution to ensure Lagos remains secure for residents and investors.

”I am pleased to inaugurate the use of body-worn cameras by law enforcement officers in Lagos and this is a groundbreaking move to enhance safety in the state, as well as increase transparency and accountability in the activities of our law enforcement agencies,” he said.
