The Nigeria Police Force has announced plans to reconsider the ban on tinted glass permits, proposing a lifting of the ban with strict protocols to prevent misuse and ensure adherence to guidelines, according to reports from Naija News.

In a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, it was disclosed that the force will provide training to ICT analysts and enforcement officers nationwide to ensure strict compliance.

The proposed tinted glass permit, as stated by Adejobi, will incorporate unique elements aimed at enhancing enforcement effectiveness and security.

Training sessions for ICT analysts and enforcement officers across the country are scheduled to commence on February 29, 2024, in preparation for the resumption of tinted glass permit issuance.

The statement read: “In a bid to bolster national security and combat criminal activities facilitated by the misuse of tinted glass, the Nigeria Police Force has concluded its review of the issuance of tinted glass permits, which were previously banned in June 2022.

“The ban was instituted due to widespread concerns regarding the role of tinted glass in aiding heinous crimes such as kidnapping, armed robbery, illegal transportation of firearms, human trafficking, etc.

“With the proposed lifting of the ban, stringent measures are being put in place to prevent abuse and ensure strict compliance with guidelines governing the issuance and use of tinted glass permits.

“The training will equip ICT Analysts and Enforcement Officers with the necessary skills and knowledge to regulate the registration process, guide registrants on the use of the portal where required, address complaints from members of the public, and enforce compliance effectively.”

The force spokesperson emphasized that the training will delve into the intricacies of the updated regulations, stressing the importance of maintaining a delicate balance between public safety and personal liberties while safeguarding national security.

“The proposed tinted glass permit will incorporate distinctive features aimed at enhancing enforcement efficiency and security. These include a QR code linked to a central database for real-time verification, unique serial numbers correlated with vehicle and owner details, as well as a digital hologram ensuring authenticity and integrity, among other measures.

“It is crucial to highlight that the guidelines for the issuance of tinted permits and the use of tinted glass will strictly adhere to the provisions of the MOTOR VEHICLES (PROHIBITION OF TINTED GLASS) ACT 1991 and other relevant extant laws. This strategic approach underscores the commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to prioritize public safety while upholding individual rights and national security interests.

“The Nigeria Police Force remains committed to providing updates to the general public on the implementation of the reviewed process of tinted glass permit issuance, ensuring transparency and accountability in its efforts to maintain internal security.”
