#LiberiaElections: Police Chief Promises Safety for all During Upcoming Elections

Liberia's Police Inspector General Gregory Coleman has recommitted the Liberia National Police (LNP) willingness to work with all political parties and candidates during the course of the 2017 Presidential and Representatives elections, so as to dismiss any fear of police prejudice. IGP Coleman said the LNP sees the forthcoming elections as pivotal to the country’s emerging democracy.

The Police Inspector General said his primary focus is to provide a more professional policing service to the public during and after the elections, but stressed that the commitment of all actors in the political sphere of the country is needed.

According to a release from the Liberia National Police, IGP Coleman said the provision of a conducive security environment was a matter of concern to the elections security management board, adding that "we are all concerned about the pending elections, and are working collectively in making sure that the electoral process is handled without any major incident that will question the credibility of the country's security apparatus".

Liberia is scheduled to go to the polls on 10 October to elect a new president to replace the incumbent President Sirleaf.
