Nigerian Police Set To Lift Ban On Issuance Of Tinted Glass Permits For Vehicles

Following a comprehensive review, the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has announced its intention to lift the ban on the issuance of Tinted Glass permits for vehicles across the country.

In a statement released by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, it was revealed that in preparation for the reopening of tinted glass permit issuance, ICT Analysts and Enforcement Officers nationwide will undergo specialized training.

The decision to lift the ban comes as part of efforts to address concerns surrounding the misuse of tinted glass, which has been linked to various criminal activities, including kidnapping, armed robbery, and illegal transportation of firearms. The ban on tinted glass permits was initially imposed in June 2022 due to these concerns.

ACP Adejobi highlighted that stringent measures are being put in place to prevent abuse and ensure strict adherence to guidelines governing the issuance and use of tinted glass permits. As part of these measures, ICT Analysts and Enforcement Officers will undergo comprehensive training scheduled for February 29, 2024.

This training aims to equip personnel with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively regulate the registration process, provide guidance to applicants as needed, address public complaints, and enforce compliance with the regulations.

Emphasis will be placed on understanding the intricacies of the new guidelines, with a focus on maintaining a balance between public safety, individual freedoms, and national security interests.

The proposed tinted glass permits will feature distinctive elements 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, and a digital hologram to ensure authenticity and integrity.

Importantly, 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 laws.

This approach underscores the Nigeria Police Force’s commitment to prioritizing public safety while respecting individual rights and national security concerns.
