The Carter Center has donated several pieces of equipment to the Liberia National Police (LNP) to boost the works of the Professional Standards Division, Human Resource Department and the Information Technology Section of the LNP.
The prices of equipment which were donated on Thursday, January 28, include three desktop computers and three backup batteries.
Presenting the items on behalf of the Carter Center, the leader of TCC Rule of Law program Mr. Saah N‘Tow said the donation is part of Carter Center’s ongoing support to the Liberia National Police through the Police accountability and Citizens Trust project which is intended to increase public confidence in the LNP through improved transparency and accountability.
Mr. N’Tow said the project is being implemented in the three regions of the LNP.
Region One includes: Grand Bassa, Margibi and Rivercess counties, Region Two includes Bong, Lofa and Nimba counties, while Region Three includes Montserrado County.
According to Mr. N’Tow, the items will help accelerate the uploading of officers’ information into the new Find Officer application system, while helping to improve computer-related communications, social media utilization and ultimately boast the management of internal efforts to raise officers’ awareness of the complaints and commendations processes.
Receiving the items on behalf of the LNP, Inspector General Patrick Toe Sudue extended gratitude to the Carter Center for its continues support and capacity building of the LNP, terming the donation as timely and rewarding.
He further explained that the equipment will be used for its intended purpose, and at the same time call on other organizations to follow the good example of the Carter Center.
The Carter Center is a non-profit organization which seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health in developing nations.
