Liberia: UN Envoy Urges More Patrols By Police

Liberia: UN envoy urges more patrols by police

The senior United Nations envoy to Liberia today called for stepped up anti-crime patrols to keep communities safe in the West African country.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's Special Representative, Alan Doss, stressed that officers with Liberia's National Police (LNP) should fully engage in night-time patrols with their counterparts in the UN Police and Military.

The UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) is providing armed support and transport for these anti-crime patrols "and the consistent presence of the Liberian police in this effort is essential," he added at a ceremony honouring Nepalese peacekeepers serving with the operation.

"The people of Liberia expect no less," said Mr. Doss, calling for continued support for the LNP to curb crime in the country, which is consolidating peace following a 14-year civil war.
