USA & UK to restructure Liberian Police?

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says the ineffectiveness of the Liberia National Police has given rise to the bad security situation in the country. She said a restructured police force could fight crime if the necessary logistics and better incentives were provided them. The Liberian President disclosed that her government has asked the United States and British Governments to assist in the restructuring of the police to meet international standards. President Sirleaf was speaking on a wide range of issues of national concern, Wednesday at a major press conference in Monrovia. Meanwhile, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has left the country for a weeklong visit to South Africa. While in South Africa, the President will serve as Guest Speaker at the 90th birth Anniversary of Former South African President, Nelson Mandela. President Johnson Sirleaf is also expected to receive the Nelson Mandela Award for 2008. liberiabroadcastingsystem.com
