The Nigeria Police Force has announced the conclusion of its review of the ban on tinted glass permits, which was initiated in June 2022 due to concerns about their role in facilitating criminal activities. In an effort to enhance national security and address these concerns, the Police Force is implementing stringent measures to ensure compliance with guidelines governing the issuance and use of tinted glass permits.

As part of this process, ICT Analysts and Enforcement Officers nationwide will undergo comprehensive training on February 29, 2024. This training will equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to regulate the registration process, assist registrants with the online portal, address public complaints, and enforce compliance effectively. Emphasis will be placed on the new guidelines, highlighting the importance of balancing public safety with individual freedoms while safeguarding national security.

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 ensuring authenticity and integrity.

It is emphasized that 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 Police Force’s commitment to prioritizing public safety while respecting individual rights and national security interests.

The Nigeria Police Force pledges to provide regular updates to the public on the implementation of the reviewed tinted glass permit issuance process, ensuring transparency and accountability in its efforts to maintain internal security.
