We are pleased to unveil the details of the 6th edition of the PCRC Lagos Biennial Conference slated to begin from 30th October 2021 to November 11th 2021 with the theme: Achieving a Sustainable Police /Community Partnership in Nigeria. In the past few years especially the fallout of the EndSars challenges, there has been a declining Police – Community relationship. Hence the theme is to re-energize the Police /Community partnership as well as rebuild the trust between the Community and the Nigerian Police Force.
PCRC is a Community Policing -based organization created primarily to bridge the gap between the Nigerian Police Force and the Community in order to promote efficient , effective and proactive policing of the entire society and one of the ways of achieving this laudable objective is by organizing a biennial conference where stakeholders are invited to discuss topical issues that will impact positively on the Police -Community relationship and improvement of the overall security situation in Lagos State in particular and the country in general.
