As part of effort to intensify patrols along the nation’s highway, the Nigeria Police has commissioned Forty units of Toyota Hilux Patrol Vans and four specially fitted Crime Scene Investigation vehicles, for immediate deployment.
The vehicles which will be used primarily for the patrol of our highways are expected to fill the gap created by the recent dismantling of roadblocks by the Force, across the federation.

The IGP, while addressing officers and men of the Force during the commissioning ceremony, warned against any form of misuse of these vehicles, stressing that the vehicles must be used for the purposes for which they are deployed.
 He stated that the newly acquired vehicles are to reinvigorate the Police Highway Patrol Units nation-wide, to facilitate effective and efficient crime combat on the highways, enhance speedy response to distress calls along our highways and generally enhance the capacity of the Police to maintain a round-the-clock presence on our highways, in line with the IGP's concept of high visibility policing.

While appealing for the cooperation, support and understanding of the public in the war against crime and criminality, the IGP assured Nigerians that more vehicles will be deployed to the highways as soon as the Force acquires them.
