Appearing as guest Wednesday on the Capitol FM breakfast show following his completion of graduate studies at Harvard University, Commissioner Coleman indicated that the approach targets communities in Monrovia where crime rate is alarming.
Coleman mentioned that communities initially earmarked for the exercise include the New Georgia Community in Gardnerville, Redlight in Paynesville and the Old Road Community, where there is huge public outcry of violent crimes.
He indicated that LNP within the next few months will embark on both visual and physical changes in operations of the police in order to regain the respect of the public.
“Officers of PSU, ERU and the Patrol Division of the LNP on a daily basis will patrol communities in Monrovia and its environs, chat with community dwellers, for an improved relationship”, he stated.
According to him, this exercise will greatly improve the presence of police officers and install public confidence in the police force.
“We will justify to the public through our improved performance that the police needs more support to do its work”, Coleman said, adding, “We want the citizens themselves to advocate for more support to the LNP through the work and services we render them”.
“This change of strategy will improve corporation and collaboration between the police and the citizens,” Coleman averred.
