The Agency’s training and manpower responsibility is central to the achievement of its vision of an efficient Agency with evident intelligence gathering capability, operational effectiveness and administrative proficiency, to be able to tackle the drug war in its totality. What is also fundamental here is its manpower development philosophy of capacity building through training and retraining of staff. They Agency’s officers and men are therefore exposed to both local and international training to ensure that their skills are properly horned for the sensitive drug war which demands delicate handling, and the application of modern methods.
The Agency’s Academy in Jos, which has been adopted as the Regional Academy for Drug Control by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is to achieve the sole purpose of providing limitless training opportunities for the officers and men of the Agency. That the Academy has become a veritable ground for the training of other sister security organizations, is a clear indication that the manpower development policy of the Agency is not an idle proposition.
