The LEA said this is one of several steps it is taking in collaboration with the Security Sector Working Group (SSWG) to improve community police relations.
The Head of SSWG, Cecil Griffiths, told the UNMIL radio talk show “Coffee Break” Wednesday that these kinds of steps will improve community and police interrelation as well as accountability in the event of a circumstance involving an officer.
He stated that other steps are citizens dialoguing with police on issues surrounding safety and security in their communities.
“The LEA will also go to high schools in Bong, Nimba and Montserrado Counties to talk to students in the senior class and take community members to the police station to see how police work and the challenges they face,” he pointed out.
Meanwhile, Griffiths has noted that LEA and SSWG are contemplating on working with the Ministry of Justice and UNMIL to do an assessment and come up with a legislation that will regulate the private security industry in Liberia.
