IG of Police sets up a new unit to replace SARS

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has set up a new unit to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team will “fill the gaps” arising from the dissolution of SARS.

He contained this in a statement signed by the Force spokesman, Frank Mba, on Tuesday.

Mba confirmed that Adamu has “ordered all personnel of the defunct SARS to report at the Force Headquarters,

Abuja for debriefing, psychological and medical examination.

“We expect the officers to undergo this process as a prelude to further training

and reorientation before being redeployed into mainstream policing duties.

They will carry the medical examination out by the newly set-up Police Counselling and Support Unit (PCSU).
