The United States Embassy near Monrovia has donated several office equipment worth US$5,435 to the Professional Standards Division (PSD) of the Liberia National Police (LNP).
According to a LNP press release, the items donated include five Dell computer sets, five filing cabinets, five surge protectors, five AVR 500A stabilizers, two HP DeskJet printers and three Kaspersky Anti-Virus kits.
The Director of International Narcotics Law Enforcement at the US Embassy, Sally Schegil, along with other senior staff, presented the items on behalf of the United States Embassy.
Schegil informed LNP authorities that the donation was in partial fulfillment of promises made to the LNP, and reassured the police department the embassy was prepared to build the capacity of the PSD in handling public complaints.
Schegil also congratulated the PSD on behalf of Ambassador Deborah Malac for its professional and transparent work in upholding the credibility of the Liberia National Police.
She urged the PSD to make maximum use of the equipment and for the intended purpose.
Receiving the items, Deputy Chief of Police Prince Mulbah lauded the Americans for the gesture, and promised to handle them with care to meet the needs of the Liberian people.
He said the donation will greatly enhance the work of the PSD in serving those that will visit the division to file complaints against police officers who come in conflict with the law.
