Police Implement Stricter Measures for Tinted Glass Permits

The Nigeria Police Force NPF has announced the successful completion of a comprehensive review of tinted glass permit issuance, signalling a significant step towards addressing concerns linked to criminal activities facilitated by the misuse of tinted glass.

In a press release shared on the official handle of the Force, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, highlighted the imperative nature of the review. He noted that the decision to review tinted glass permit issuance stemmed from widespread apprehensions regarding its role in aiding heinous crimes such as kidnapping, armed robbery, illegal firearm transportation, and human trafficking.

He said the proposed lifting of the ban on tinted glass permits is accompanied by a robust set of measures meticulously designed to prevent abuse and ensure strict compliance with the provisions of the MOTOR VEHICLES (PROHIBITION OF TINTED GLASS) ACT 1991 and other relevant laws.

To prepare for the reintroduction of tinted glass permit issuance, ICT Analysts and Enforcement Officers nationwide are scheduled to undergo extensive training on the 29th of February, 2024. The training aims to equip personnel with the necessary skills and knowledge to oversee the registration process and enforce effective compliance by the public.

Key features of the proposed tinted glass permit 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 ensuring authenticity and integrity.

ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi reiterated the Force’s commitment to transparency and accountability in maintaining internal security, assuring regular updates on the implementation of the revised tinted glass permit issuance process to the general public.

Recall that the Force had in June 2022 bared its men from demanding tinted glass permits from motorists following serious complaints of harassment by Nigerians that some policemen have turned it into a money-making business.
