In an effort to assist the Police in fighting crimes in Margibi County, the Margibi detachment of the Liberia National Police has built a partnership with Citizens of Larkay-Ta Township in District #4.
The partnership was built between the Police and the Citizens of the Township over the weekend at a one-day forum held at the Commissioner’s Compound and later climaxed with a friendly encounter between both parties.
Making remarks during the forum, the Chief Superintendent of Police in the County; Sylvester Hinneh said the partnership to enable the citizens to buttress the effort of the Police in combating crimes in the County.
According to him, once the area is crime free; people will sleep without being harassed by criminals adding that it is the responsibility of all Liberians to get involved in fighting crimes.
He explained that Larkay-ta was selected amongst the 32 Communities in Kakata to be their first stopping point based on police statistic which shows that the Township does not have any criminal record.
“Imaging three police officers to thousands of inhabitants here, you people are doing very well,” he told the citizens.
Mr. Hinneh indicated that amidst the lack of car, motorbike or bicycle on the part of the police; the citizens are cooperating with the three officers assigned in the Township thereby applauding them for the good work.
He urged the citizens to not get tire but rather continue cooperating with the police because as soon as they get tired that is the time the criminals can get tougher.
Mr. Hinnah used the occasion to call on the citizens to make use of their cell phones to inform the police in case there are strange things taking place in the area that cannot be handled by them to make the Township crime free because the police are not everywhere.
The Margibi Police Chief admonished parents to advise their children or take them to the Women and Children Protection Section (WCPS) of the Liberia National Police and they will be advised or talked to or counseled.
He further accused some parents of being the ones encouraging their children to commit crime calling on those involved to desist. The Margibi Police Boss Meanwhile assured the citizens that the police will make it their duty to have a meeting in the area twice or more.
For their parts, the Commissioner of Larkay-ta Township Omega Sawyer and his citizens thanked the Police for the partnership and at the same time promised to cooperate with them.
Commissioner Sawyer also used the occasion to thank his citizens for attending the forum. He, therefore, urged them to always attend meetings that will see the Township moving forward.
