ASP Monica Johnson commonly known as Monique de Unique, is among few of the female Police officers who have broken the status quo of no female police officer or held high position in the force. She among others before her like Rtd. AIG Kadie Fakondo, AIG Betty Turay, AIG Gloria O. V. Tarawally, AIG Memuna Konteh-Jalloh and few others have upheld the adage that what men can do, women can do even better.

This exemplary Police officer is a holder of a Masters degree from the University of Bradford, United Kingdom and have worked as a Detective, and one of the best in that field. She has been in the administrative field over the years and had also served as operations-minor-officer at Central Police division where she helped to restore sanity and confidence between the Police and the community.

She has served as lecturer at the Sierra Leone Peacekeeping and Law Enforcement Academy (SILEA) where she has influenced and capacitated so many senior and junior Police officers through her capacity building/development lectures. It is no secret that Integrity, passion for her job and professional ethics has always been her pedigree.

ASP Johnson was a dedicated public servant who played a key role in enforcing the law and curbing crimes for the safety and well being of Sierra Leoneans . He will be deeply missed by his colleagues, friends, and family.

In a cruel twist of fate, Mrs. Johnson had recently been promoted as the Local Unit Commander of the New England Ville Police Division.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.
