Bong County Police Commander has said policing the county, particularly Gbarnga, the Capital of Bong with one police station, is a major impediment.
Mr. Nelson Freen said Gbarnga is a big city and as such, one police station cannot cope with the huge operations of the police.
In an exclusive interview with our Bong County Correspondent, Mr. Freen underscored the need for additional police stations in a bid to deal with the day-to day operations of the police in the county.
When quizzed by our correspondent as to whether there are plans to build another police station, he responded, saying “We have written proposal to our partners, and we hope that it will work out for us.”
He maintained that Gbarnga is a big city in Liberia, and that, it needs additional police stations. However, he stated that they will manage with the one police station until as at such time when more police stations would be built.
When further quizzed by our correspondent about what progress has been made to reconstruct the police deport that got burnt last February, the Bong county Police boss said the superintendent of the county informed recently that a committee has been setup to locate an area where the police depot will be reconstructed.
According to him, he will be having a meeting tomorrow, Thursday and the issue of the reconstruction of the burnt police depot will be high on the agenda.
He used the occasion to encourage the public to continue cooperating with the police in reporting crimes and acts that are inimical to sustenance peace and stability in the county. He added that the police greatly need the help of the police in making its work effective and efficient.
