Director of the Sierra Leone Police Family Support Unit who also doubles as the Sierra Leone Police Female Leader in the Southern Region had on Saturday 20th May, 2023 teamed up with SLP females in the South Region to spread out non-violence campaign and violence against women ahead of the June 24th, 2023 Multi-tier General Elections.

The indefatigable Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Mrs. Fatmata Daboh Kamara said that she was overwhelmed by the swift and massive participation from the Southern Region’s female Police officers amid the short notice of the event.

“We aim to prevent the outbreak escalations,  continuation, and recurrence of violence which may occur before,  during, or after the June 24th Multi-tier General Elections,” she said to all present.

Mrs. Kamara opined further that Sierra Leone Police always believes in peace in more than just the absence of violence, taking into consideration the primary responsibilities of the force which are to protect the lives and properties of Sierra Leoneans.

“This is a fresh project directed by the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mr. William Fayia Sellu to take the lead to spread out the non-violence campaign messages all over the country,” she added.

After a successful foot parade within the city of Bo, the Local Unit Commander (LUC) Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Michael J.K. Lagga addressed the female personnel present in a joyful disposition and encouraged them to love their job, and respect their superiors and follow the disciplines in the SLP Code of conduct.

CSP Lagga on behalf of the Regional Police Commander South, AIG Brima Kanneh, and other

colleague LUCs encouraged those present to proactively support AIG Brima Kanneh on other for peace to continue to reign in societies across the Southern Region ahead of the said Elections.

The crowd appreciated both Mrs. Fatmata Daboh Kamara and the only female LUC Bo East Division in the South, CSP Bernadette Sia Sandy, for demonstrating such remarkable leadership qualities and being so enthusiastic, which equally proved their determination and resilience in carrying out their roles as Senior Female Police officers in the Sierra Leone Police Force.
