Hon. Consul Meets Police Chiefs – Builds Relationship

The former Chief of the Liberian National Police and Director General of the National Bureau of Concession designate, Mr. Gregory Coleman was part of a high-level meeting of police chiefs of both Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center hosted at the Liberian Consulate in Minnesota by Hon. Jackson George.
Brooklyn Park Police Chief Craig Enevoldsen and Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon were invited to discuss building a direct relationship and providing both logistical and operational support to the Liberian National Police. Speaking at the meeting, Hon. George thanked both police chiefs for taking time off their busy schedules to meet and discussed issues of vital importance to both the Liberian Community and Liberia. The objective of the meeting was to begin the negotiation for the establishment of a “Police Officers’ Exchange Program” (POEM). The program will have police officers coming from Liberia for training while officers from both cities will travel to Liberia for similar activities. Community policing was also a part of the discussion as Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center are homes to thousands of Liberian nationals in the state of Minnesota.
Hon. Coleman who was the Inspector General of the Liberian National Police prior to be appointed as Director General of the National Bureau of Concession, designate, thanked both chiefs for providing insights into their operations and said that he will return home and inform the new Inspector General of the Liberian National Police Col. Patrick Sudue of the relationship being built by Hon. Jackson George. We need every assistance we can get, and your help Hon. George is a step in the right direction, Hon. Coleman ended.
Hon. Coleman also met with leaders of the Liberian Business Association in the Diaspora. The discussion centered on concessions in Liberia and the role of Liberian businesses both in Liberia and the diaspora.
