Liberia National Police (LNP)

The Liberian National Police (LNP) is the frontline force of internal security in the fight against crimes, the protection of life and property, and in the maintenance of the rule of law, as directed by its statute. The LNP is also at the frontier of the transfer of state security responsibility to the Government of Liberia as UNMIL draws down.
