Police Chief Urges Rule Of Law During 2017 Elections

MONROVIA, April 17 (LINA) - Police Inspector General Gregory Coleman has cautioned citizens of Bong, Lofa and Nimba counties to uphold the rule of law during the October elections, noting that the exercise is important to the future of the country.

He said the “YES TO PEACE, NO TO VIOLENCE” initiative undertaken by the police is intended to build the confidence of the public in the Liberia National Police.

He called on the citizens to support the initiative being promoted by the Liberia National Police, indicating that the move is not because of fear of the public, but is intended to take the police to the people for better cooperation and understanding.

According to a LNP release, Inspector General Coleman called on locals of the three counties to report any form of police misconduct that they may experience while interacting with officers assigned in their respective counties.

He said gone are the days when law enforcement officers were lords unto themselves by abusing the public trust.

“You are encouraged to report any form of misconduct on the part of our officers to the Professional Standards Division of the Liberia National Police in your county, and I can assure you that appropriate action will be taken against any officer that will be found liable,” the Police boss said.

The police-citizens dialogue was attended by local officials in the three counties.

During the dialogue, officials reminded the citizens of the role they have to play in promoting the transition process that must be void of violence.

They promised their fullest commitment in working with the police to promote violence free elections in 2017.

Also in attendance were two of Liberia’s leading entertainers: Hott FM Radio show presenter Aaron Clinton CKA Spider, and Musical star Faquama Deline  CKA  F.A.

Both stars in their performances encouraged the audience to take serious the upcoming elections and support a non-violent approach during the elections.

They said they were confident that the successful conduct of the 2017 elections will cause the country to take its place among the comity of nations.

The two Liberian stars promised to continue spreading the non-violence message being promoted by the Liberia National Police nationwide.
