Pleebo Police Deport Undergoes Phase One Renovation, Commander Rallies Government, Humanitarians for Support

PLEEBO, Maryland County – The Police Commander of Pleebo has embarked on a massive renovation exercise at the Pleebo Police Station in Maryland County.

The station, has over the time, been a major help in decreasing crime rate and other violent acts, as well holding pre-trial detainees and prisoners in the county.

Pleebo District’s Police Commander J. Max Roberts told K-News Maryland Correspondent that the renovation is his own initiative.

Commander Roberts, however, noted that his office had sent a series of communications to Maryland County’s local government authorities to support the renovation project, but since they had not responded, he and his men officers decided to initiate the project.

He said while they are yet to get response, they remain hopeful that help will come along the way.

“We wrote letters to the county authorities, but it has taken a long time for them to respond to us.  So, we decided to do it by ourselves.  It is my own money that I am using.  Some of my officers are good at doing cement work. So, we’re doing it all by ourselves.”

Roberts has made a repeated rallying call on government and humanitarian agencies and private citizens to support the initiative.

 “So, we are calling on the Liberian Government, humanitarians and anyone who will hear or see this information because the station needs more work.  The latrines and all the prison facilities. Pleebo Police Station needs to get to itself.” He explained.

It can be recalled in 2021 March, the Pleebo Police deport was vandalized while the Harper Police deport and House Speaker Bhofal Chambers’ house were both set ablaze by angry protesters who were seeking Justice for the gruesome murder of a 12th grade student Modecious Nyemah in Pleebo. 

At the end of the demonstration, a close friend of the victim was arrested and found guilty of murder, and he’s currently facing 47 years imprisonment.

Since the 2021 riot, there has been no prison facility in Maryland County.  Those found guilty and sentenced by the courts are sent to neighboring River Gee, or to Grand Gedeh for imprisonment.
