When it comes to the supervision and the control of the Nigeria police, there are three agencies responsible for that:
The Police Service Commission (PSC)
Nigerian Police Council
Ministry of Interior.
Organizational Structure of the Nigeria Police Force
The corporate structure of the Nigeria Police Force is in line with the geopolitical zone of Nigeria. The structure aid the Nigerian police to function effectively within the internal territory of the country.
State Commands Headquarters
Divisional Police Headquarters
Village Police Post.
Let’s just get into it. Below are the estimated annual salaries in the Nigerian police arranged by ranks. The list range from non-sworn employees known as Police recruits all through the Inspector general of Police.
CONPOSS: this stands for Consolidated Police Salary Structure. It’s the equivalent of Nigeria Civil Service Grade Level. So, a Police recruit is in composs 1 which is similar to grade level 1.
STEPS is the number of years you’ve been on a particular rank. A Corporal in step 3 is the same as a 3rd-year corporal. The 3rd year corporal earns a little more than a 1st year corporal.
Steps in the police force stop at 10 which is supposed to be the 10th year. You’d likely be promoted to a new rank by your 5th year or earlier.
I’d like to keep this page simple. So I’ll just be dropping the step 1 salaries for the rank. Just know this is the bare minimum one would get a particular rank.
