The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Security Expert Guard Agency of Liberia (SEGAL) Momo T. Cyrus is calling on the Government of Liberia to aid his institution.
Cyrus expressed that SEGAL is immensely helping the government of Liberia in terms of job creation and employment and as such, the government should cooperatively work with his Security Firm.
The CEO stressed that his Security Firm contributes half a million, US$500,000.00 into the Liberian Economic through salaries and other incentives every year which should motivate the Liberian Government to help the institution.
When quizzed by our Grand Bassa County Correspondent, Cyrus indicated that when talking about government’s cooperation, he’s not only looking at the aspect of money, but the willingness of government to provide training for officers working for his institution.
Momo Cyrus pointed out that it will be necessary and welcoming if government starts helping institutions that are absolutely contributing to the country by means of creating jobs for Liberians.
It can be recalled in June of 2016, Cyrus suggested to government that private security firms be allowed to carry firearms; saying it will deter criminals and bad doer’s who are always attacking private security officers with weapons.
Meanwhile, the security firm have trained and certificated 50 of its officers in “International Ship and Port Facility Security”.
Maritime Security Consultant, West Africa Maritime Consultancy Ernest Omaboe who served as head facilitator said the training will capacitate the officers when it comes to providing security for ships and port areas.
Omaboe further explained that the officers grabbed the various topics discussed; adding they will improve at their respective place of assignments.
He used the opportunity and expressed gratitude in SEGAL Administration for the performances of the officers.
Responding to the facilitator, the CEO for SEGAL thanked the trainer for the level of knowledge provided to his officers.
He placed the cost of the two days training which commenced on August 14 and ended Wednesday August 15 at ten thousand United States dollars.
For his part, Harris Harpper, Field Supervisor who topped a test given the 50 participants with 98% said he’s certified with the working relations between the officers and Administrators of SEGAL.
He said the training received will help him to be more proactive and efficient on the job.
