Nigerian Police Ranks & Salary Structure (2022)

The Nigerian Police Force is an executive branch empowered by the state to oversee state policing and to protect the lives and property of its citizens. We also have some Nigerian Police units that are under the federal government.

Though the Nigerian Police is no longer considered a force, they are still mandated to enforce Nigerian laws and order, as well as to reduce civil disorder.

The police are commonly defined as a law enforcement authority, but their functions clearly extend beyond the realm of law enforcement. Nonetheless, in this excellent article, we have provided insight into the responsibilities and functions.

The NPF created a well-structured and organized salary scheme for its staff in order to make payment of staff easy and transparent, thereby avoiding a breach of order or control.

The Nigerian Police Force Salary is divided into grades and steps, based on ranks or distinctions among officers on the same level; all of these are the grounds on which the NPF Salary is based.

The Nigerian Armed Forces, which include the Nigerian Army, Navy, and Airforce, are divided into two categories: commissioned officers and non-commissioned officers, and the Nigerian Police Force is no exception.

To simplify matters, commissioned officers are those in the highest ranks, the senior ranked officers, while non-commissioned officers are those in the lower ranks. Though some subdivisions still indicate the ranks and quality grade levels, this distinguishes officers in the same level and can be due to honors or achievements on the field.
