J4A has been providing support to Voluntary Policing Sector groups in Kano State in order to improve their internal and external systems and processes, leadership quali-ties and respect for human rights in the discharge of their duties.
As a result of this effort the Nigerian Police Force in the Sabon Gari Division of the State has recognised and commended the Sabon Gari Vigilante group for its discipline, commitment, dedication and hard-work in fighting crime in the community. A letter of commendation from the Sabon Gari Divisional Police Officer, CSP Shuaibu Bello was presented to the VPS Commandant, Sabon Gari, Mrs. Christy Adebayo.
In further appreciation of their work office space was donated by three government officials they include; the Special Adviser to the Kano State Governor on South-South Relations, Mr. Christopher Anayo; the Special Adviser to the Chairman Faggae Local Government Area, Hon Chuks Vincent; and the Counsellor in charge of Sabon Gari West Ward, Hon Etiebat. The group has since relocated to their new office space.
