ASP Nkeiruka Nwode, Police Public Relations Officer, Anambra State Police Command is one of the new faces helping to give the Nigerian Police a new image. Nkeiruka who is the first female PPRO Anambra State Police Command – recently spoke with Anambra Broadcasting Service ABS on what motivates her and how she deals with all the attention. See below;
Handling the interest on her looks and dealing with the distractions.
It is amusing sometimes but instead of distracting me, it has always spurred me on because I believe it is my doggedness on the job that brought about the interest not beauty as some people allege after all I am not the only pretty officer or even the prettiest. As a PPRO, my forte lies in influencing positive comments about the police on social media.
Her reason for joining the police force
Having the interest of people at heart. My joining the Police was solely out of passion, as I had other job offers. Police job is service to humanity, and I want to make my contribution to my fatherland in that regard.
Life as a female police officer
Hmmmmm! It has been wonderful. I really enjoy this job and it has been my motivation to weather the storms of life though I will tell you it has not been easy since the profession is more of a man’s world. It hasn’t stopped me one bit and being a PPRO hasn’t in any way changed my outlook on life but has given me opportunity to have better dealings with people. Today, I believe I am a better police officer than I was yesterday.
