LNP Launches ‘Operation Guardian Angel’

first_imgAuthorities of the Liberia National Police (LNP) yesterday launched what they called a tactical operation, code name “Operation Guardian Angel.” According to an LNP release, the operation is intended to address the high incidence of criminal activities during the holiday celebrations.The LNP calls on the public to cooperate with the police by reporting any suspected criminal activities in their communities. Operation Guardian Angel commenced on December 1 and will be active up to January 15, 2017. It will entail the deployment of police officers at strategic intersections and other places to provide assistance to the physically challenged, pregnant women, and the elderly who will be crossing major roads. The presence of police officers will also serve as a deterrent to criminals, who may want to inflict harm on peaceful individuals.“The operation will also address the problem of traffic congestion and conduct surveillance, detection and deterrence patrols including possible arrests of violators in commercial centers,” the release said.The release quotes the Police Director Gregory Coleman as saying that Operation Guardian Angel is intended to provide an enabling and safe environment for every resident and stranger entering the country through an effective, efficient, and professional police service delivery.Coleman said modern policing is concentrated on service delivery. He called on police officers to adapt to the new trend of policing if they want the police to win the confidence of the Liberian people.He assured the public of police preparedness to provide the required security services as the country approaches the 2017 presidential and legislative elections.Director Coleman has warned LNP officers to adhere to the principals of democratic policing, discipline, excellence and to avoid getting entangled in corrupt practices. He maintained that police officers are to demonstrate professionalism that reinforces their commitment to democratic values, respect for human rights and a non- partisan approach to duty.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu finished the 2015 season tied for sixth in the league with five interceptions in 14 games.Mathieu played 67.5 percent of his defensive snaps at cornerback that season, and Pro Football Focus gave him the highest grade at the position.But Mathieu intercepted only one pass in 10 games in 2016 and registered 35 tackles, less than half as many compared to 2015 (89).Head coach Bruce Arians met with the media on Wednesday in London and said Mathieu has not looked like the 2015 version of himself on the field this season. “No. Healthy-wise, he is, but he’s not playing like it yet,” Arians said.PFF had Mathieu as the lowest-graded safety in football on Sept. 27, and his overall grade for the season of 47.5 is considered poor on PFF’s scale. Through six games, he has one interception, two passes defensed and 29 tackles.Mathieu’s performance combined with Justin Bethel up-and-down early season play probably explain some of why the Cardinals’ defense has given up the sixth-most passing yards (1,500) and the second most touchdowns (13).Arians said Mathieu’s performance this season probably has to do with his confidence, but the former LSU Tiger told the media on Thursday he feels good going forward.“I think confidence comes with, like I said, making splash plays, just making the plays that I’ve made since I was 5 years old, and those plays will come,” Mathieu said. “Like I said, my focus right now is playing well in critical situations.”Mathieu said he can no longer focus on splash plays because those will come with consistent performances in critical situations. The former third-round pick said that is his mindset going forward.“Yeah, I would say so,” Mathieu said. “It would have definitely taken me out of my game, but I’ve got a great group of guys around me. I think, ultimately, my teammates believe in me, and at the end of the day, that’s all that really matters.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Safety Tyrann Mathieu of the Arizona Cardinals, left, and Brandon Williams, right, attend an NFL training session at the London Irish rugby team training ground in the Sunbury-on-Thames, a suburb of south west London, Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017.
