The Commissioner of Police (CP) in Jigawa, Mr. Mohammed Mustapha, on Thursday, said 1,201 officers and men of the command had been promoted to various ranks.
Mustapha disclosed this while decorating the newly promoted officers in Dutse.
He said 11 Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSP) were promoted to Superintendents of Police (SP) and 27 Inspectors were now Assistant Superintendents of Police.
Others were 782 Corporals promoted to Sergeants and 381 Police Constables elevated to Corporals, while the promotion result of Sergeants to Inspectors was being awaited.
The commissioner said that the promotion was a reward for hard work and dedication, therefore beneficiaries must step up responsibilities to justify their new ranks.

Mustapha congratulated the immediate past Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, for successful completion of his tenure and retirement from Nigeria Police Force.
