The Concerned Students Movement of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion University (AMEZU) has honored Deputy Police Director, Attorney Samuel Dakana, for his dedicated services to the police and the public.
The student group noted that Attorney Dakana, also Commandant of the Liberia National Police Training Academy, continues to play a major role in building the image of the national Police force. The students said it was encouraging to note that despite the numerous challenges faced by police officers, the police are dedicated to fighting crimes.
The campus based student movement observed that Dakana is one of those senior Police officers, who remains committed to fighting it to the letter. The students also lauded the leadership of Police Director Chris Massaquoi for improvement in the LNP.
“Honorable Dakana, we the students of the AME Zion University, especially the Criminals Justice Department are pleased to honor you today for your commitment to the LNP; we have carried on our survey and realized that the people are pleased for us to give your flowers, while you’re still alive,” said the Chairman of the group Daniel Sando, as he certificated the honoree.
In response, Attorney Dakana described the recognition as a big surprise saying, “I am shock; let me admit this step by you the student community proved that you have seen something potential in the police,” he said.
He however dedicated the honor to his boss, Chris Massaquoi and other colleagues in the Liberia National Police as well as his immediate family, assuring that the police will remain forceful in fighting crimes as repeatedly announced by Police Chief Chris Massaquoi.
Attorney Dakana then added that it was critical for the community to work together with the police, noting that in the context of fighting crimes, the Police are the first and last line of defense as they do not only provide services, but give hope to the nation.
