IG MUNU APPEALS FOR HELP
Inspector General Francis Allieu Munu has appealed to the citizenry to help the Sierra Leone Police (SLP) make the country a security developed nation.
Making the appeal to stakeholders during his recent visit to Kenema, IG Francis A. Munu dilated on the development projects the SLP has undertaken in his regime, including the storey building at Lumley in Freetown and the police garment factory.
The police chief urged the stakeholders of Kenema to provide a suitable land for the construction of another police divisional office in the city.
“If a suitable land is provided, there will be a Regpol building and a divisional office since Kenema Police Station is being used as regional office and a divisional one,” IG Munu said.
He added that the construction of the Kenema Police Hospital which was initiated by the Kenema Local Policing Partnership Board (LPPB) would be completed very soon.
The IG disclosed that beds and other medical equipment have been acquired and asked the Regional Commander of Eastern Region, AIG Alfred Karrow Kamara to contract a very reliable and serious contractor that would finish the hospital building.
In his response, the LPPB Acting Chairman, Mr. Alphajor Bah, thanked the police chief and his police personnel for genuinely partnering with the public.
He said the LPPB has been working with the police to combat crime in the district and the region as a whole, noting that the Kenema LPPB has started constructing the police hospital and the ongoing police cells building at the Kenema Police Division.
Mr. Alphajor Bah therefore appealed for immediate help on grounds that the police and LPPB are financially constrained.
In his statement, the head of the Eastern Region Human Rights Commission, Mr. Hassan Haja, requested the police chief to include human rights modules in the police academy programme since human rights concept is pivotal to police duty.
The Anti-Corruption Commission’s (ACC) Regional Manager, Mr. Kamara, also appealed to IG Munu to in include anti-corruption courses in the police academy programme since police represent Government in any international findings on corruption.
He added that if anti-corruption courses are included in the programme, the SLP would be fully informed and trained on corruption matters and issues.
