LAGOS STATE NEIGHBORHOOD SAFETY CORPS (LNSC): AN OVERVIEW
The Lagos Neighborhood Safety Corps (LNSC) is a uniformed security agency created in 2016 by a bill passed by the Lagos State House of Assembly to help the Lagos State Police Force and other security agencies in maintaining peace and order in the State. They operate in all 57 Lagos LGA/LCDAs. The officers of the Lagos Neighborhood Safety Corps (LNSC) are indigenous residents of the various LGA/LCDAs where they operate, which is a deliberate policy in order to maximize grass-root information gathering and community policing.
Functions of LNSC include:
- Gathering information about crimes, crime in progress, suspicious activities and crime suspects among other things
- Making available such relevant information on rimes, crime in progress, suspicious activities and crime suspects to the police or other security agencies that require it
- Putting structure in place to ensure that hoodlums and cult groups do not have the opportunity to operate
- Undertaking routine motorized patrol day and night
- Reducing the crime rate and ensuring that offenders are identified and made to account for their misdeeds
- Following up on arrest of offenders to the court and ensuring justice
- Timely reporting of suspicious activities and crimes in progress to the police or other security agencies and improving relationship between the police and the community as it concerns law enforcement
- Contributing to maintaining community peace.
Because officers and men of the Lagos Neighbourhood Security Corps work with the Police and are taught to acquire details about various crimes, patrol their neighborhoods daily and at night, assist in the arrest of suspicious people and offenders, and so on, this profession can be risky. Many Nigerians, especially Lagos State residents, see this duty as noble, and many are eager to join the Corps, which brings us to the question, how much is the average monthly salary of members of the Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Corps (LNSC)? We will find out shortly.
