Police Director Grateful To UN Police
The Inspector General of the Liberia National Police (LNP) has applauded the United Nations Police (UNPOL) for their unmatched role towards the enhancement of global peace and security.
Col. Patrick Sudue spoke recently at a program in honor of 29 staff of UNPOL for their support and recognition for their professional contribution to the promotion of peace and security in Liberia.
The 29 honorees are men and women from different countries around the world who contributed to peace and security during and after the civil crisis in Liberia.
“UNMIL has also provided operational equipment like uniforms, accessories and other specialized clothing,” he pointed out.
The Police Inspector General indicated that in an effort to sustain peace and security in Liberia, the United Nations established the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) through its resolution 1509 (2003) and with a mandate to support the reform process of the security sector in Liberia including the police.
He further said that against this backdrop, UNMIL, through its UNPOL components, has made immense contributions to the reform and restructuring of the LNP in providing recruitment, training and human resource capacity building of officers.
He lauded UNMIL for also helping to develop legal instrument such as policies and other administrative documents, infrastructure development and refurbishment of police stations, depots and barracks.
