The bikes, which were presented by the central administration of the Liberia National Police (LNP) Tuesday, were provided by the Japanese Government through the U. N. Development Program (UNDP) as part of its post-Ebola project of enhancing border surveillance in Liberia.
Bong County Police Detachment Commander Fredrick Nappy told the Liberia News Agency that the motorcycles will also help the police to increase its ongoing engagement approach in cementing relations with the communities.
Nappy thanked the government and partners for the donation and assured that the detachment would make maximum use of the bikes to bring the needed security services to residents of the county.
The Bong County Police Commander has, at the same time, called on residents of Bong County to always support the police in its fight against crime and strengthen security in the county.
Nappy noted that in the wake of the UNMIL drawdown, citizens need to work closely with state security to combat crimes in their respective communities.
Nappy explained that the county security apparatus has begun meeting with citizens residing along the various border points in the county to get residents more involved in keeping their communities peaceful.
