 LNP Beefs up Security at NEC August 18th, 2011

As the impending referendum and the 2011 Presidential and Legislative elections draw nearer, the Liberia National Police (LNP) has assigned additional 24 officers of the Police Support Unit (PSU) at the National Elections Commission (NEC) to provide protection for the Board of Commissioners.

Presenting the officers to the Commission, the Assistant Chief of Patrol at the LNP, Supt. Prince Davis, said by directive of the Director of Police, Mark Amblard, they were assigning the 24 police officers to beef up the strength of police detailed at the NEC as it bubbles with two electoral events back to back.

Welcoming the officers in the rank and files of the Commission, Chairman James Fromayan in a brief remark said, “as an institution, the NEC requested the LNP to provide additional security man power to the commission during these charged electoral period.”
Chairman Fromayan expressed happiness that the LNP has responded favorably, adding, “going to the referendum and 2011 elections, there is a need to beef up security at the NEC.”

Following the welcome formalities the officers were deployed with each of the seven Commissioners assigned with officers. Also assigned with officers is the Executive Director, John K. Langley, who serves as security to the Board of Commissioners.

The assignment of the 24 police officers will strengthen security personnel currently assigned at the NEC including the nearly 30-men strong newly created NEC security unit.
