Authorities of the Liberia National Police have embraced and welcomed a new survey report from NAYMOTE, which rates the LNP as one of the most trusted national security agencies in Liberia.
Reacting after the release of the report, the Inspector General of the Liberia National Police expressed gratitude to citizens across the country for their expression of trust and confidence in the operation of the LNP.
Col. Sudue also assured citizens and residents of his leadership’s unflinching commitment to jealously protecting the peace and stability of the state, while respecting the fundamental rights of citizens. He pledged to exert more energy in enhancing community policing relations, which he described as the most effective modern approach to law enforcement.
He further lauded NAYMOTE for their tireless efforts in microscoping the operation of the Liberia National Police through citizen participation. He expressed commitment to doing more in enhancing and maintaining good relations between citizens and the Liberia National Police.
Meanwhile, IG Sudue has dedicated this year’s survey result to the gallant men and women in blue for their sacrificial services in maintaining the peace and stability of the state since the departure of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).
IG Sudue went on to disclose that this huge survey achievement from NAYMOTE coincides with his leadership, currently working with the Carter Center in advancing Liberian Police Accountability and Citizen Trust (ALPACT), funded by the US State Department Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs. He added that this project seeks to raise awareness of the complaints and commendation mechanisms among senior leadership, officers and the public.
It can be recalled, the 2021 Survey report, as released by NAYMOTE, puts the LNP at 71%, after a rigorous sampling of views on citizens trust and confidence in the operation of the Liberia National Police.
According to the report, this score of the LNP is a huge progress made in the way citizens view the operation of the LNP, as compared to 2019, when the LNP didn’t do as well in the group’s survey, scoring 51% from the sampling of views conducted with a cross-section of citizens.
