The award which attracted other benefits to the police station, such as the offer by the head of the legislative arm of the LCDA, Mr. Olanrewaju Akinbowale to always fuel the operational vehicle of the station for the duration of the DPO’S tenure, was meant to spur men and officers for excellence in their respective service, especially as it was meant to boost the morale of the DPO who has changed the face of policing in that area.

CSP Okuwobi who was visibly elated at the presentation ceremony stressed that the honor is not just an additional feather to her cap, but also a call for greater productivity, emphasizing that the Council Leadership and indeed the people of ejigbo, have made her believe that Community policing “is here to stay”.
