Lt. Sumo said the checkpoint project, which started in October 2013, will host offices of the Liberia National Police, Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization and Fire Service as well as a prison cell.
He said funds used for the project were generated by the security officers, while citizens in the area provided local building materials such as blocks, round poles and planks as well as food for the construction workers
Lt. Sumo said the project is part of the joint security officers’ efforts to help reduce the constraint government faces in finding office space for security officers assigned across the country.
