Classroom Note:

Identification Of Security Agencies And Their Duties – Nigerian Police

Today, we learned about the Nigeria Police Force, which is important for keeping us safe. The duties of the police include arresting criminals, controlling traffic, and keeping peace during public events.

A police station and a police barrack

A police station is where police officers work, and it has offices, cells for criminals, and sometimes a courtyard. A police barrack is where police officers and their families live.

Mode of dressing

Police officers wear uniforms that help identify them; these uniforms include a shirt, trousers, cap, and sometimes a jacket, which have special colors and badges.

Lesson Evaluation:

To evaluate the learning, the teacher asks pupils to:

  1. Name three duties of the Nigeria Police Force.
  2. What is the difference between a police station and a police barracks?
  3. Describe what a police uniform looks like.
