He added  that  if  the  communities  were  not  satisfied with  the actions  of  the  police  at  any  jurisdiction  in  the state  they  should  report  the  case  at  the  next  higher  level for  necessary  action while assuring the  stakeholders  that  the  Edo  State  Commissioner of  Police  was  accessible  and  would  quickly  respond  to complaints  by  community  leaders.
