Head of the Complaint Disciplinary Internal Investigations Department (CDIID) of the Sierra Leone Police, Chief Inspector (C.I) Emmanuel Yamba and his team from Police Headquarters have conducted an awareness-raising sensitisation to the personnel of the Harbour Police Divisional Headquarters on offences that are frequently or likely to be committed by police personnel as outlined in the Elections Mandate of CDIID handouts.

C.I. Yamba outlined the various offences stated in the handouts which are frequently or likely to be committed by police personnel before, during, and after elections.

He urged personnel to always be professional in executing their duties, especially during this electioneering period, and to avoid any negative action that will put the Force into disrepute.

Outlining some of the acts, he urged personnel to avoid wearing of political party colors, taking photographs with politicians, and avoid being found for Lack in Civility.

In summary, the CDIID Coordinator Freetown-East C.I. Raymond Kobba urged personnel to be apolitical and to always uphold the professional disciplinary standards of the Force.

In conclusion, the Local Unit Commander (LUC) Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Kpulun thanked the team for their proactive measures in sensitising members of the force about the offences that are frequently or likely to be committed by police personnel during electioneering period, and the need to avoid being a defaulter.
