The statement said the meeting was convened to brief the stakeholders on the progress made by so far in the overhaul of the SARS now known as Federal SARS.

Gwandu said that the overhaul of SARS was beyond rhetoric as strategic reforms were being implemented.

He added that the police had engaged the services of psychologist and counsellors in the ongoing screening of FSARS Operatives.

On his part, the DCP in charge of the I-G’s X-Squad, Amaechi Elumelu, said in the statement that the screening and mobilization of FSARS operatives would not be business as usual again.

Elumelu said that FSARS operatives would undergo rigorous orientation including human rights training among other screening processes.

He said the I-G would soon unveil the Custody Records Management System and that the system would contain the records of arrest, detentions and welfare details of suspects.

The Commissioner said this system would discourage orbitrary arrest of people and ensure that suspects were charged to court within 24 hours, in compliance with the law.
