Baba disclosed this while receiving a delegation from the International Certification for Digital Literacy (ICDL) Foundation, which was led by the Chairman of E-Tech Complete Solutions Ltd, Mr. A.U Mustapha (SAN).
He said the force will partner effectively with ICDL to ensure a comprehensive digital skill for police officers and men.
He said: “Ten thousand police officers and men are undergoing training on technology. We also make several efforts to ensure that our officers and men are computer-literate.
“We have a computer school in Abeokuta and many of our officers are also undergoing training there.
“With ICDL coming to us now, we are willing to work with you to achieve the best because technology is very important. We will partner with you”.
