We are the members of the above named body, an umbrella organization of Criminologists, Security Experts and related disciplines, academic world and the student bodies, which strives at professionalism. It is a non-profit making educational organization whose membership pursuit is scholastic, scientific, metaphysics, cultural/traditional and professional knowledge concerning the measurement, etiology, consequences, detection, prevention, management, control, and treatment of crime and delinquency including the victims of these vices.

We are poised to harness adequate intelligence on National Security issues from all available academic and non-academic perspectives with a view to curbing all manner of criminalities and security challenges in the country via intelligence policing system. NACSP is a Community Oriented Police Service (COPS) corps.

  1. In the wake of, and the preparations for the 2023 general elections, we hereby propose a robust security summits geared towards sensitizing the public on good mannerism and to be law abiding citizens before, during, and after the general elections in the six (6) geopolitical zones of the country in collaboration with the Federal Government and other relevant stakeholders.  
  1. we strongly appeal to all the national security agencies and the criminal justice system in Nigeria for the immediate approval and acceptability of undergraduate students of criminology and security studies for a six (6) months field observation, monitoring and evaluation exercise being part of their academic and practical experience in line with the Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) policy of the Industrial Training Fund of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
  1. We vehemently appeal to the National Universities Commission (NUC) and the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) for immediate integration of members of this Association into their accreditation team as a channel to build synergy across related professions in criminology and security studies.
  2. the challenges of crime and security have compelled developed and developing nations of the world to introduce crime management studies, security studies, peace studies, conflict resolutions management studies, anti-corruption studies and anti-terrorism studies owing to its cardinal roles of inducting criminologists at tender age which has comparative advantages, we therefore call on the Federal Ministry of Education to create and design curriculum templates for the above listed subjects and to also introduce the subjects into kindergarten, nursery, primary, and secondary school educational systems in Nigeria.
  3. That, we observed with dismay, the indiscriminate and incessant carrying of fire arms and also the use of security operatives as orderly by politicians which in turn down size the national security operatives of our national security agencies, and hereby call on the Federal Government for the immediate ban of fire arms by unauthorized persons in the country, and the immediate deployment of security operatives to hotspot of criminal incidents.
  4. The Association requests for the immediate establishment of an Intellectual Task Force or Think Tank on crime and criminality in the country by the Federal Government and other relevant agencies.

OUR PRAYERS

That:

  1. As a matter of urgency, the Federal Government should direct all agencies and stakeholders on the above listed critical issues without further delay.
  2. Security agencies should be made to work hand in hand with this Association in the different geopolitical zones in order to have quick and working solutions to security challenges.
