The Chief Host of this conference, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun PhD., NPM., as part of his vision of reform policies for the Nigeria Police Force launched the NPF Gender Policy which would ensure gender sensitivity and inclusivity in the policy and operations of the Nigeria Police Force. The IGP further reassures of the commitment of the present police leadership to gender inclusivity at all levels.
