Kakata Re-launches Municipal Police Force

Kakata, March 1, (LINA) - The Municipal Government of Kakata has reactivated its law enforcement department following years of dormancy.

Speaking during the commissioning ceremony Saturday in Kakata, Margibi County Superintendent John Buway said he was very delighted to have the City Police back in the county’s capital.

Superintendent Buway told the City Police to see themselves as "servants of the community rather than a force to be feared.”

He further observed that the reactivation of the city police force will serve the people of Kakata, and also help the Liberia National Police beef up its security patrol and network.

He also said the city police was being reactivated at a time when the Municipal Government of Kakata was operating in the absence of budgetary support from central Government.

Superintendent Buway then assured the City Corporation of his full support to the police force as their presence will help deter crime in the city.

Earlier the Chairman of the City Council, Aaron Dennis, thanked Superintendent Buway for his support and assured that the police will work assiduously, to ensuring that Kakata city is well protected from crime and other violations of the law.

Chairman Dennis admonished the City police officers to be peaceful, tolerant and law-abiding, while at the same time respecting the rights of the people.

He said since the civil crisis there has been no city police operating under the City Corporation of Kakata, and as such, was finding it very difficult for the enforcement of city ordinances.

The City Police Force comprises five officers and is expected to increase in the near future.
