Marine Police

The Marine Police was established in the year 1891 in Lagos, Nigeria and was then styled ‘Night Water Patrol’. In those early days, improvised equipment such as locally carved wooden (hand pulled) canoes were used for surveillance and anti-crime patrols. The Marine Police now has a fleet of gun boats and fiber boats with which the unit patrols the inland water ways in Lagos State. The LSSTF has supported the Marine Police in providing and maintain equipment used in combating crime.
