AIG Kargbo said there has been an increment in the area of house breaking and robbery and that most of these things occur during the night hours and that is the reason he has ordered for MVCP which he said is already operating in other cities (Freetown, Makeni and Bo), and with its establishment in his region it will help in reducing the high crime rate within the Kenema city and the region as a whole.

AIG Sorie B. Kargbo reiterated that with help of MVCP the police in Kenema have arrested a lot pf criminals and charged them to the Kenema Magistrate Court while the operation is still ongoing.

Speaking to this medium about the operations the person in charge OC OSD Kenema Division, ASP Abdulai Kamara, said MVCP was established in 20012 with the aim of reducing crime in the division and that MVCP is a permanent check point that moves from point to point within a stipulated time (for an hour).

ASP Abdulai Kamara reiterated that the MVCP starts at 10:00 p.m., each day and ends at 6:00 a.m., and that the check point is about checking vehicles, motor bikes and human beings that ply the street after 10:00 p.m., and during the checking if they are not satisfied with anybody, or any vehicle or motor bikes within the checking, the matter is taken to Kenema police station for further investigation.  He therefore called on the general public not to fear as the check point is not about hurting them but rather is a way of protecting their properties and even their lives and he also admonished the general public to always report criminals as soon as they see a crime.
