Police publish emergency contact numbers

Posted by

The phone numbers of all divisional police officers, or DPOs, have been made public by the Adamawa State Police Command so that residents can contact them in case of a security emergency.


This is in response to an increase in criminal activity throughout the state; just last Friday, a man was killed in the state capital by a teenage gang that was after his cellphones.

In a statement received by 460play on Monday morning from the command headquarters in Yola, 51 DPOs from the state’s 21 local government areas were listed as being contactable at any time of day or night for security breaches.

The numbers are a backup for all residents in the police command’s “effort to effectively respond to distress calls and to ensure the protection of lives and property,” according to the statement. They are described as “DPOs’ emergency hotlines for standard operational procedures for seamless responses to distress calls”.


The statement, which was signed by Suleiman Nguroje, Police Public Relations Officer, further stated that the DPOs’ hotlines would assure surveillance and reporting of any suspicious activity or violent activities by dishonest individuals capable of upsetting public calm.

The statement emphasized that this was done as part of the Command’s endeavor to carry out its strategy of reacting to distress calls and dealing with lawbreakers or groups of lawbreakers in any section of the state.

In order to report any security breaches in their neighborhood, it urged the general public to call the DPO who covers their area.
