As part of efforts geared at addressing threats posed by the dynamics of crimes in the country, and the full implementation of the Community Policing initiative, the Federal Government of Nigeria has approved the reorganization of the Nigeria Police Force.

This reorganization includes full autonomy of the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB), creation of five additional Police Zonal Command Headquarters and the decentralization of the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department (FCIID).

By this re-organization, the FIB, which was previously a section under the FCIID, is now a full-fledged Department of the Force to be headed by a Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG). With this new arrangement, the Nigeria Police Force now has eight (8) Departments and each is headed by a DIG.
