The cheques were presented on Thursday, at the Force Headquarters in Abuja to the beneficiaries.
Life Assurance Scheme is being funded by the Federal Government while the IGP family welfare scheme is funded by the Nigeria Police Force.
Egbetokun charged the beneficiaries to use the money for the benefit of the families left behind by the deceased officers.
He noted that the gesture was part of the NPF’s efforts to sympathise with the families of deceased police officers and also for the upkeep of their day-to-day life challenges.
