Police set to review ban on tinted glass permit



The Nigeria Police Force has revealed plans to review its ban on tinted glass permits.

DAILY POST recalls the ban was initiated in 2022 due to widespread concerns regarding the role of tinted glass in aiding heinous crimes such as kidnapping, armed robbery, the illegal transportation of firearms, and human trafficking.

In a statement, the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the proposed lifting of the ban, stringent measures are being implemented to prevent abuse and ensure strict compliance with guidelines governing the issuance and use of tinted glass permits.

Adejobi said ICT analysts and Enforcement Officers nationwide will undergo a comprehensive training scheduled for the 29th of February, 2024, as a prequel to the reopening of tinted glass permit issuance.


He added that 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, attend to complaints from members of the public and enforce compliance effectively.

The statement reads, “The proposed tinted glass permit will incorporate distinctive features aimed at enhancing enforcement efficiency and security.

“It will focus on the intricacies of the new guidelines, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a delicate balance between public safety and individual freedoms while safeguarding national 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”.

The PRO further stated that the Nigeria Police remained 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.
