In his last visit to Kailahun recently the Inspector General (IG) of Police, Brima Acha Kamara, informed residents that “there is a political will” that regulate their operations.
He was responding to certain allegations levied against the police with regards to their attitude to certain issues.
“If you stand by your principle and someone above moderates you, who are you to say no?” he questioned. On the issue of the working relationship between police personnel and the community, he said “we are referees who should not take sides but always remain neutral.”
Brima Acha Kamara said, “as the society changes everyday the police also follow the trend with moral authority to properly police the people.”
The IG stated that with sound educational background police were now displaying high professional standards in policing the state.
On the forthcoming parliamentary and presidential elections, he maintained that police would not only be neutral but would provide the necessary security to ensure a peaceful voting atmosphere.
