ABSTRACT: The study investigated the influence of public relations as a tool of Industrial Harmony with a focus on Nigeria Police Headquarters Enugu. The study looks into the internal and external problems of Nigeria police and how the police relations officer has succeeded or failed in resolving problems. The study was anchored on Grunig and Hunt Model of Public Relations. A survey research method was adopted with questionnaire as the instrument to elicit responses from the respondents. The data were analysed in descriptive statistics (frequency and percentage). Findings drawn from the study revealed positive that police serving in Enugu faces internal and external problems such as poor salary, poor equipments at home and offices, insufficient accommodation, poor medical care and poor relationship with the publics; which makes it difficult for the police to manage crisis due to inadequate information from the publics. The study therefore recommended that police should stop extortion, bribery and corruption, brutality, aiding and abating crimes because of their position in the society. The study recommended that government should take welfare of the police serious, so that they would take their work seriously and also provide them with latest equipment to be able to face the current insecurity challenge rocking the length and breath of the Nation.
