China and Great Britain have lauded the effectiveness and efficiency of the Liberia National Police (LNP) in combating crimes, a release says.
An LNP release issued Tuesday, 17 July says the commendation was made through written communication to authorities at the Liberia National Police and the Ministry of Justice.
The Chinese Government through its Embassy near Monrovia thanked the LNP for its prompt and professional manner in which the alarming wave of criminality was handled over the past weeks.
The Embassy then recommitted its Government’s fervent support to the rebranding process of the Liberia National Police, especially in the areas of logistics, technology and human resource development.
“The Embassy would like to express sincere gratitude to the Liberia National Police for the prompt and professional response to the above mentioned incidents,” the Chinese are quoted as saying.
The release also adds that the British have said thanks to the police force here for being so responsive to “our security.”
Receiving the communication on behalf of the Government of Liberia, Justice Minister Cllr. Musa Dean applauded the Government and people of China and Great Britain for recognizing the gallantry, effectiveness, promptitude and professionalism exhibited in the arrest and subsequent investigation and prosecution of criminal suspects who have been terrorizing peaceful residents of Monrovia and its environs.
Speaking on behalf of the LNP, Police Inspector General Col. Patrick T. Sudue recounted the much needed assistance the people and Government of China have given the police here, especially during the Ebola crisis and the just ended Presidential and Representatives elections in October and December 2017 respectively.
Col. Sudue vowed to fight crimes no matter what color or form they may appear, or whoever is involved.–Press release
