Liberia: 'Prioritize Private Security Sector'

The Acting General Manager of the Security Experts Guard Agency-SEGAL Fredrick Duwor has expressed his heartfelt gratitude for the honor bestowed upon them. According to Mr. Duwor, his entity has performed with profound honor and gratitude to be awarded as the Best Security Guard Service for the year 2012 by a pro-media group the Coalition of Investigative Liberian Journalists Network.

The SEGAL acting Boss said the preferment was based on diligence, dignity, courage, respect for all men and women, courtesy, integrity and honor.

Mr. Duwor said, SEGAL's presence is felt in almost all of the entire country most especially, counties that are not accessible. He said SEGAL has been built to an institution with better systems put in place which has attracted positive signs that have seen the entity reached thus far.

Mr. Duwor spoke when a pro-media group the Coalition of Investigative Liberian Journalists Network honored SEGAL as Best Security Guard Service of the year 2013.

During the honoring program at the Office of SEGAL on 10th Street last Thursday, the acting President of the Coalition of Investigative Liberian Journalists Network-CILJON Momoh Siryon thanked the Management of SEGAL for the level of good work they have exhibited over the years.

He said the honor came through vetting process which was done by several media partners that submitted names of security firms operating in the country.

The CILJON Acting President said SEGAL emerged as winner of the votes due to many things their partners took into consideration. He named punctuality, integrity, and discipline as some of the issues considered.

Gathering views from ten of the 15 counties of Liberia, many Liberians called on the Government to focus on the citizen's demands in prioritizing the security sector of Liberia.

Making the calls, the citizens said as UNMIL is gradually drawing down, there exists weaknesses in the security sector of the country with likelihood of vices that could ferment a repeat of the almost two decades of civil unrest in the country.
