MONROVIA-In a bid to tighten, enhance, and improve security, at the Freeport of Monrovia, the National Port Authority, (NPA) has commissioned a new patrol boat.

The commissioned boat will also help to detect, deter and enhance security at the Freeport of Monrovia.

Consistent with the Operational  Security plan of the Port, the launch of the new Patrol Boat serves of paramount importance to the overall safety and  Security of International vessels navigating the Ports of Liberia.

The new Patrol Boat will also play a critical role in the implementation of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) protocols at the Freeport to ensure full statutory certification and  Compliance.

In Separate remarks at the Commissioning ceremony Wednesday; Simon Chea, Director of Maritime Security and Chief ISPS  Compliance Officer along with  NPA’s Deputy Corporate Security Coordinator  Barclay Dennis Jr, described the move as a dream come true and fulfillment of NPA’s Boss commitment to the US Coast Guide’s recent routine  Inspection to Liberia.

Also speaking on behalf of the Managing Director, Madam Diana Nebo, Col. Logan Davis, Director of the Liberia Sea Port Police praised the NPA boss’s leadership’s ability to have solved the such pressing issue which will enable the LSP to prevent security threats to Vessels Operations at the Port.

The LSP Boss averred that the lack of Patrol Boat(s) at the Freeport for about Six to Ten years, has been a major challenge to the detection of crimes at the waterfront and prevention of unauthorized access to ships navigating the Port of Liberia.

He, therefore, warned would-be perpetrators to be fully aware of the Liberia Sea Port Police’s resolve to launch rigorous routine waterfront security patrol to protect the Port in straight compliance with the ISPS Code.
