As at today, the Nigeria Police Force has a total number of 371,800 men and able bodied officers and they are distributed among the several departments of the Nigerian Police, which are located in different states across Nigeria.

Although, the federal government has said in a recent report that it would increase number of the force officers to 650,000. This means there is planning to employ over 200,000 more Nigerians to join the present officers in the Nigeria Police Force.

The Nigeria police started its operations in 1930, but it was under the colonial masters then. The security outfit has 36 commands spread across different states of the nation. The 36 commands are also grouped into 12 zones and these zones are under the control of 7 different administrative organs.
