President Ernest Bai Koroma last Friday officially commissioned three projects spearheaded by the Sierra Leone Police – namely the new constructed Lumley Police Station, the refurbished Police hospital and a garment factory at the Kingtom Police Barracks.

Speaking at the ceremony, President Koroma praised Inspector General of Police Francis Munu and the Police Force for the feat of completing three projects at the same time, thus completing the government’s development agenda.

The president gave a brief history of colonial buildings erect for the Police, such as Police Stations, which he said would not compare with the new buildings which are more spacious and meet the modern standards of the police.

On his part, the Inspector General of Police said he was elated that they were able to complete the three projects at the same time, adding that they would serve both the regional and divisional headquarters.

Mr. Munu said Police uniforms would henceforth be sown at the garment factory, while the 55-bed refurbished hospital would cater for the medical needs of Police Officers and their families.

He thanked First Lady Mrs. Sia Nyame Koroma for accepting his invitation to serve as special patron for the Kingtom Police hospital.

He revealed they have commissioned a closed circuit television [CCTV] project, and that the control rooms would be at the newly constructed Lumley Police Station and the yet to be completed building at Ross Road, west and east of Freetown respectively.

He pledged to change the face of infrastructure in the Sierra Leone Police across the country. He cautioned Police Officers to manage police resources with care, as he lauded their great effort, passion and dedication to the completion of building projects across the country.

The Inspector General of Police also thanked donor partners and local business houses for their support to the building projects.
