According to the police boss, who has 26 years experience, in 1999 the police force was restructured to enable them to stand the test of time and as a result many reforms of training have been carried out that have raised the standard of the force.
IG Munu promised to embark on a multi stack holder approach in his fight to tackle crime as the force will rely on intelligence and early warning signals to prevent crimes.
Munu further vowed to improve on the image of discipline and accountability as the force will strive not to appear political in discharging their functions. However, Munu disclosed how difficult it is to provide security as logistics and inadequate personnel are the biggest challenges facing the police force, as the current ratio of police to civilians is 1:500.
The new Chief of Defense Staff R.Y. Koroma also noted that they comply with the mission statement which is to protect the territorial integrity of the state. He further stated that he will concentrate in down sizing the army in order for the army to be well catered for. He noted that further concentration will be laid on the air wing as it has nothing to show for it. According to the new Chief of Defense Staff it is nearly four decades since the terms and conditions of service were put in place and during his tenure he aim to amend this.
