The Local Unit Commander (LUC) of the Magburaka Police Division, Northern Sierra Leone, Alfred Karrow Kamara has said on Monday 14th July 2008 in a radio interview that one of the major success of the Magburaka Police Division was the arrest of a huge quantity of marijuana in a military vehicle in Mile 91. He said this achievement was attained with the cooperation of civilians from whom the police got intelligence about the military truck.


Chief Superintendent Kamara said the establishment of a Local Policing Partnership Board has been very indispensable to the police in executing their duties, adding that the initiative was a wise one as the size of the SLP is inadequate for the provision of security to every nook and cranny of the country. LUC Kamara asserted that the Mile 91 catch is the largest arrest ever in the history of Sierra Leone at which point he commended the civilians in that community for given accurate information.


He implored the people in the district to perceive the police as their friends by reporting any illegal practice that has the potency of been a threat to their security. He emphasized that if a harmonic relation is maintained, the police can effectively combat the issue of crime in the district. He urged all patriotic citizens to be vigilant in their communities.
