The Community Policing Partnership Board (CPPB) in Kenema has held its first raffle draw in that city with two-year-old Adama K. Kabo of 22 Susu Town winning a 21-inch TV set as the star prize. The draw took place at the Capitol Sunday.
The prize was received on behalf of the two-year-old by her father and mother, Frank Babo Kabo and Yatta Jaward respectively.
Mr Kabo thanked and appreciated the effort of the police and members of the partnership board for organizing such a draw.
He encouraged all to come onboard the partnership drive, saying that it could be better to spend their money on things that would be beneficiary to either an individual or the community than to lavish their resources on things that had no good effect on the community.
The girl’s father called on all present to be informing the police about any unusual happening in their communities, adding that police were most effective when they were promptly and properly informed.
Admonishing the 19 winners of various prizes, which ranged from bicycle to wall clock, the Regional Operations officer East, ASP Bongroh disclosed that it was high time people considered the police civilian relationship as cordial.
He indicated that the gesture was a bold step to the success of the community policing which is being commended by many in the society.
ASP Bongroh encouraged the losers not to relent, stating that to try and fail did not count one out of success at any time. He called on all to keep trying their luck as God knew where the fortune would fall.
