UNMIL donates IT equipment to Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency

Monrovia - In support of the fight against drug trafficking in Liberia, UNMIL today handed over Information Technology (IT) equipment to the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA) at the agency’s headquarters in Monrovia. 

The donation consisted of 8 laptops, 8 printers, 8 modems and 17 printer cartridges, procured under UNMIL Quick Impact Project (QIP).

“This may just be basic office equipment. But, hopefully, it should support you in your work, particularly in the counties, as you gather intelligence, information and data that will be fed back to the headquarters, so that you can have a better picture of the criminality across Liberia and how you are going to tackle it,” said UNMIL Police Commissioner, Simon Blatchly while handing over the equipment to LDEA Director General, Anthony Souh.

The Police Commissioner reassured on UNMIL continued support until the Mission’s closure in March 2018.

The Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency is an agency within the Liberian government charged with fighting drug-related crimes. It is responsible for fighting drug trafficking at the country's borders, arresting traffickers and dealers, and destroying illegal drugs.
